The world is filled with different people with brains that are wired differently. Having so many different minds in this world would mean that there are a ton of opinions out in the world. We all grew up/are all growing up living through different experiences and such, hence why we may like and dislike different things. I am not here to say what defines a good person or a bad person, and nor is the subject of “good” and “bad” about morals in this article. This article will be about opinions and values.

From viral trends to cliques in school to a personal interest; there are bound to be people who are going to judge the things you like. You may enjoy certain things such as having a collection of pebbles, and people may often try to force an opinion on you, as some people may believe that their opinions may be the best. While it may not have been right for them to judge, it does not mean that they were wrong. At the same time, you are not wrong either. Someone may find pebbles uninteresting, and they prefer doing things such as hiking. To them, their opinion may be correct. But to you, you may not prefer hiking as you believe that is a waste of time instead. So what is better, collecting pebbles or hiking? The answer is that depends from person to person.

As stated from above, since we are all wired differently, we are not going to like all the same things. After all, being different is how we can create change within the world. Next time when others tell you why your opinion is invalid and that their opinion is better, do not just try to change their opinion. Other people's opinion on what is better is not wrong, but it is not a complete statement. For example, they may say, "hiking is much more fun than collecting pebbles." To them, hiking is more fun than collecting pebbles. To them, that is, but that may not be the same for you. What they truly meant is "hiking is much more fun than collecting pebbles for me."

Furthermore, "good" and "bad" refers to what is meets your needs and/or desires. For example, if you wanted to keep up with a trend, a trendy sweater from last year might become useless for you now. The sweater is still in good condition, but it is no longer what you are looking for. For someone who does not care about trends, this sweater may still be in perfect condition. Certain things fulfill certain needs and/or desires. This may also apply in certain relationships as well. You might not be in the best interest of someone as you may not match the personality type that they prefer. Just because someone does not think you are a good partner, it does not necessarily mean that you are a bad partner. You may just not be a good partner to this person. Or the other way around, perhaps you may think the same for another person who is interested in you.

In addition, we may also have a different level of tolerance for certain things as opposed to others. What is defined as bad to you (again, I am not talking about people) might not mean the same for another person. It may depend on what you are afraid of, what you have previously experienced, what is based on your personality, how you perceive something, and other factors may influence that as well.

Moreover, good and bad may depend on the balance of the benefits and the cost. The cost does not necessarily mean money-wise. The cost can be personal; it can mean time, effort, stress, risks, and a lot more. Either way, whether it's worthy or not varies from person to person. The reward from the cost may be deemed as "worthy" even after the cost. The reward from the devotion might be considered as unworthy if one believes that the cost outweighs the benefits.

Of course, a lot of people may find something "good" and "bad" depending on cultural beliefs or experiences of the past. One may develop a fear of something because of a traumatic event. In contrast, one may find interest in something that they have previously enjoyed experiencing.

Even though you should remember that "good" and "bad" is mostly subjective, you should keep an open mind to others' opinions. You might just stumble across something that might teach you something important. If you are being told that someone else's opinion is better, then think about what they are saying first. If it is logical, perhaps you could learn a thing or two. Keeping an open mind can help you grow as a person. At the same time, remember that your opinion is not the only valid opinion. The world does not revolve around you nor anybody else.

In summary, don't feel down if others tell you that what they have is "better". Whether it's music taste, hobbies, art style, genres, significance, and more, remember that it's okay to like what you like. What you accept as tolerable is up to you as well. Things such as whether or not something is worthy of your time. What they like may be the best, but it is only the best for themselves and others that believe similar things. Keep in mind that their opinion is built throughout their personal beliefs and experiences. Your interests are perfectly valid as long as it doesn't hurt anyone or yourself. Something is good enough if you think it is. There is no borderline to what is perfect as perfection itself doesn't exist. Unless a goal is benefiting the whole team, then don't just think something isn't good enough simply because others don't like it. As stated above, keep an open mind and explore others' opinions as well. Their opinion of what's "good" and "bad" may not seem significant to you at first glance, but you should not reject their opinion right away. Unless it is illogical, of course. If they have logical reasons to back up their opinion, then maybe look deeper into their opinion with a grain of salt.
