15 Ways To Respect A Person's Opinion

It has recently come to my attention after a conversation I had, that it is important to talk about how to properly respect a person's opinions.

So I've come up with 15 ways that I think is helpful when hearing someones opinion.

1. If you ask someones opinion, let them finish saying it.

2. Don't interrupt someone when they're telling or explaining their reasons for their opinion of a subject.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F12%2F635960243921082589-93819694_don%2527tInterruptMe.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=953&h=e504b7186263f6a8063205dc8f9f395d12f97e0a3d01f72bd4829d4a78e6c76c&size=980x&c=1808101826 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F12%252F635960243921082589-93819694_don%252527tInterruptMe.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D953%26h%3De504b7186263f6a8063205dc8f9f395d12f97e0a3d01f72bd4829d4a78e6c76c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1808101826%22%7D" expand=1]

3. Be respectful.

4. Treat them how you would like to be when telling your opinion on a subject.

5. Don't tell anyone that their opinion is wrong.

6. Remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

7. Don't belittle them if their opinion is different from yours.

8. Keep an open mind to varying opinions.

9. Attempt to see things as they do.

10. Don't tell someone their opinion is wrong!

11. Don't argue over which opinion is right or wrong.

12. If your opinion disagrees with someones lifestyle or life choices, it doesn't make their choices or lifestyle wrong.

13. NEVER force your way of thinking onto anyone!

14. It's good to remember that opinions are just that, an opinion, NOT a fact!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
