LOSING an Argument!
#1
If you're reading this, tell me something... when's the last time you've gotten into a heated argument with another individual and lost? Regardless of whether who started it, you may have either won or failed miserably to finish it. We've all been in that devastating situation before, where we've been mentally and verbally defeated, trying to figure out how to shut that person up and finish the argument.

Two people arguing!

But honestly, it's nothing to be ashamed of because it's a life lesson that you have to go through. You may have picked an argument with the wrong person, being unaware that they talk A LOT, and will babble on to prove their point or embarrass you in front of others. If you can't match that energy, sometimes it's best to walk away because you know you got your ass kicked, verbally!

Guy loses an argument!

Imagine opening the door to discuss a topic with someone that you know NOTHING about, and all of a sudden, some ignorant bastard jumps in (who knows way more about it than you do) and obliterates you. You get tongue tied because they start to expose you in front of others, or you quickly realize that this person is on a higher level than you are.

The more you try to win that argument, the more you sound stupid because you know they're right. None of us want to admit that because we're getting our asses kicked, verbally!

What will you do in a situation like this? Walk away?... Or resort to very violent and physical tactics like pulling a gun out or fighting this person. Depending on what kind of person you are, you may decide to walk away... who knows? Some people take it the wrong way, and would rather resort to violent tactics.

Bad guy with a gun!

The point is, everybody has lost an argument at some point in their lives. But how will you deal with it? You know you're under hot water when you have ZERO facts to backup your claims, based on what you're saying. That's when the enemy sees an open attack to strike you verbally, with everything he's got.

People don't give a shit about you because the brutal truth is that they're trying to get their point across and get you to agree with what they're saying.

If you argue with the goal of "winning", then you're doing it wrong.

The goal of an argument should be to communicate ideas and gain more understanding about your viewpoint and the other person's viewpoint.

I try to achieve that every time I get into an argument. In the end, I either find out that I am right, or I find out I am wrong and learn something from it. So I never really lose.

The real losers are those who refuse to believe that they may be wrong. And if they are actually wrong, you can't make any progress and arguing with them is completely pointless.

The fact that you gained more knowledge from the opposing viewpoint of the other person, tells me that you accomplished something, which means that you did win in something, at least. Wouldn't you say so?

If I'm big enough to start an argument and I realise I'm wrong at some point, I will apologise.
However, if I'm due to start a valid argument I will always have screenshots and evidence ready to prove myself right.
It's been quite rare that I've thrown hands in a heated argument, if you're wrong just say sorry but some people are just too stubborn and love their little egos.

Which ones were getting angry? Cause I think I was the only one vocalizing that I'm vegan, and I wasn't angry. More annoyed that people can be so intolerant of vegans to the point of bullying. Not saying you or anyone in that thread was doing this, but I have a coworker that is. We're just people like everyone else! Smile And I didn't really see winners or losers in that thread, just a difference in opinions. I actually liked how respectful it was. Most of the time, one side or the other is being extremely severe. Even if anyone thinks I "lost", I did learn that civil discussions about veganism proves that humanity is alive and well.
Have a wonderful day
