Exactly. I absolutely second you. There is a big difference between the act of forcing one's opinion and act of substantiating your views or opinion on a subject. And again, every opinion is about an individuals perspective which should be respected. I felt an urge to reply to this post as I had been impacted due to a similar kind of scenario in recent times. Some people want to have their opinion or view as the final word on the subject turning a discussion into debate, eventually concluding it to be an unfavorable atmosphere. This sometimes create a drift in relationship and the topic itself. We should learn to, first of all listen to the opinion which in many of the cases I have observed to be missing. Your thoughts are absolutely right but then, that doesn't mean am wrong is what needs to be understood.
