September Author Interview Answer #7:How do deal with people who disagree with your thoughts and views and how do you defend your point of views?

Hello everyone, I hope you have enjoyed reading the sixth post in this interview series. This is the continuation of the interview with author Debby G. Kaye and Linda Gray Sexton. Please check their bios out via the links you can see below.

Let’s check out the answers for question #7 from them.

“How do deal with people who disagree with your thoughts and views and how do you defend your point of views?”

Author #1 D. G. Kaye

I always try to empathize with people. Everyone is entitled to his or her thoughts and opinions. I don’t argue with people. If I’m confronted about a certain issue, I hear the person out and try to convey my point of view in an amicable manner, standing firm in my beliefs. I will try to express my logic for my thoughts and if I find I’m at a dead end, I quietly find a polite way to walk away.

Author #2 Linda Sexton
I try to change the subject and I never defend my viewpoint.  It’s a zero sum game.  People will believe what they want to believe and you can’t change their minds.  Likewise, they can’t change your mind about what you have achieved—or you should be strong and certain enough about what you have written so that they can’t.
It takes courage to express one’s opinion and we are not obliged to agree with critics all the time. We have our own opinions; to each his own. 
I’ll be posting the answers to the seventh question next: “What would you like to say to your readers? ”

  4. Both good answers. No point in trying to get someone to see what they don’t want to see.
