Accept the defeat

I know a lot of people, including me, who thinks that what we experienced is the life. I used to be like that. But, later when we hear about others experience, I analyse it, take all the good things that I can learn from them and it just gave me one more quality-- Accepting the defeat. It is normal that we argue about some thing. Sometimes, we may be right, sometimes the others may be right. But, I've seen people who always want others to believe that they are the one who are always right and we should accept them. When they ran out of words or when we prove them they are wrong, they simply will say some thing like "you didn't get me or you won't understand what I'm saying 'coz you don't know/experienced what life is". Every one has got their own experience, right. Each and every one of us are special. We all think what we suffered is the worst everyone has suffered. When ever I come across some situations where I've to give my opinion about something which I don't even have a clue, I say it frankly. But, there are people who say some rubbish just to show that they know each and everything in the world. We might have grown up based on certain religion, certain rules or whatever we call. More over, as we grow up we need to learn ourselves what is right and what is wrong rather than following some rules blindly. We might be a researcher or a scientist or even the president. Does that make us special from a teenager? A scientist couldn't be always right when he argues with a kid. Can he? Our mind should be open to learn new things, we could learn new things only if we accept defeat. What will happen if we think we know everything, all others are fools and they haven't come across situations that we've faced. The result is we have closed ourself against all others and we won't gain anymore. We all need to learn one thing-- Accepting the defeat!!!.

  1. there is no use in arguing if the other person is stubborn...so the best thing is to shut up and go...

  2. u r rite my friend. One who avoids to accept defeat (if he is defeated), becomes like stagnant water. He can pour lots and lots of scented water and flower in that water and feel he is become sweet and sweet, but ultimately that kind of stagnation makes the water smell like hell. One has to have the quality of flowing, like a rivre, sometime to the ocean, sometimes against, but its water remains pure, it let others survive and then finally mixes with the ocean to become the ocean. Nice post.

    There are a lot of people around who think they are the SMARTEST and KNOW-IT-ALLs. Maybe they have their reasons to feel that way. Maybe people have always put them up on a pedestal and worshipped them. However much these people irk us, you will continue to see them around. So kya kar sakte hai?

  13. sol,

    it's not whether they know it or not. it's about whether you are wrong or not. Normally, people never accept defeat even if they know they r wrong :)

  16. And abt Accepting Defeat...no one wants to do that! Even tho ppl just preach, no one wants to say they lost or made a mistake. I've seen that alot in Blogville. And even if they do say Sorry, they'll add another line to it, insulting the person they r saying sorry to.

    Usually when Im wrong, I say SORRY. It takes alot more guts to accept defeat/apologise, than go one defending urself. Trust me alot of ppl do that latter!

  17. Keshi,

    **It takes alot more guts to accept defeat/apologise.

    Ofcourse and that's what we need.

    'N saying sorry doesn't mean accepting defeat. people use the word sorry here and there unnecessarilly but when they need the word, they won't use it.

    ***So my opinions r just MINE. And your's is just YOUR's. :)

    it's not about who's opinion it is, it's about whose opinion is right 'N sometimes even though we know we are on the wrong side, just for the sake of winning we never accept it, not all, but majority does that.
