I believe that true healing occurs when one is able to honestly express how one feels about himself/herself and the world. I would be honored to support your healing change.

In my personal experience this is because every single one of us is a unique human being with a unique history , and perception of experiences. This uniqueness can, in my personal opinion, sometimes cause conflict between people.

We can't see eye to eye because we need courage to see in the eye. A negative person or pessimistic person can't see eye to eye because the second he start doing this his mind will bask him all the negative questions and make him uncertain about the situation. So the best thing he can do is avoid eye contact

We can't always see eye to eye because not everyone has gone through the same experiences. I believe that your experiences make up who you are.

Everyone has different experiences and beliefs that make them individuals. No two people see things or situations exactly the same, but we can all work to find common ground...and agree to respectfully disagree.

Everybody has their own opinions and make their own decisions- That's life. Sometimes somebody may say one thing, and you may say something completely different, or you don't agree with that person- It is normal. Nothing to worry about. It does not make you a bad person at all not seeing eye to eye with the other person- Everybody has their own opinions and decisions- Always here if you wish to speak 1-1 :)

Because we don't have the same 'eyes' and therefore we don't see the same things.

Because we're human, and therefore we're different. It's only natural that we don't always see eye to eye. Life wouldn't be interesting if we were always in agreement.

Everyone doesn't have the same view as one another, so it's hard to ever see eye to eye on anything, even if they're very simple things that you think you can agree on.

It can be hard to agree with everyone all the time. Everyone has differ not life experiences and different emotions and different personalities and sometimes that means people can clash, and although that can be hard when it is a loved one being different and having different opinions is very useful for the world. What if everyone thought like a republican? Or a democrat? The world would always stay the same even if something about it was wrong, sometimes conflict can lead to better things.

to put it simply because we're all different. the way I see it not every eye colour is the same therefore not every perspective will be the same.

Because everyone is different. No one is 100% the same. Humans are so very unique. And we have different views and out looks on life.

you are not meant to see eye to eye with everyone. sometimes its best to try to see what others see. that is what some people really need.

Sometimes people feel more comfortable not looking at you. Maybe there's bad blood between you and it needs to be talked about.

The rabbis of the Talmid have an expression for this which roughly translates to "just as their faces are different, so too are their ways of understanding the world different". It's all perspective. Remember that someone standing right next to sees the same thing from a slightly different angle. Those differences in perspective make life so much richer!

Not one person has the exact same point of view on every subject! That would be intolerable to be with a clone of yourself! How boring! The important part is to have enough in common on the values most important to you and learn to compromise on the smaller issues

Maybe because you guys care so much of what each other thinks and wants. You guys probably want the best for each other and you guys will argue your way through each other to make one another understand that. Good if you guys can try another approach to this.

Because we don't all think about things the same exact way. We also don't understand each other a lot of the time.

Everyone is different! It's not always about seeing eye to eye, it's about compromising and respecting each other. Disagreements are perfectly normal, and it's okay to not see eye to eye sometimes. It's all about how you deal with the disagreements.

How can we see eye to eye? We are all complex creatures, all having been taught different things, informed by completely different lives and lifestyles. How can you see eye to eye with people worlds apart? Ultimately, though, we don't all need to agree. Love, respect, and tolerance, above all else. Care about each other, be kind, and we'll cover the important ground that way.

In my own opinion, there are 7 billion people in the world. That is 7 billion different perspectives, experiences, projections, personalities, and each one of those things are combined uniquely. It is OK if we do not see eye to eye, so long as what we are seeing, we are taking in and trying to lend an empathetic, compassionate approach to understanding what's in front of us.

Well it’s simple coz not everyone is standing at the same height as you or for that matter looking in your direction or sometimes not everyone possesses the ability to see. It’s same with life I guess. People have different perspectives or they are looking at different things than you or they simply lack the ability to look or understand.. and may be all of them are justified as reasons for people not being able to see eye to eye.

We the answer why can't we see eye to eye is because we have feelings and that our feelings are not going to be the same as the person that your going eye to eye with. That is the beauty of this question because I would not want to always see eye to eye for the simple fact that I can learn from someone else point of view. And to always see eye to eye does not mean your always going to feel better at the end of the conversation anyways. But to end this we all have feelings and that to me is the reasons why we just can not see eye to eye because there is a lot to learn from both ends here.

Well, first of all there is no two people a like and therefore it is going to create a difference of opinions. However, we can be different but learn to agree with many things in life that we have in common. So, the key here is to find a common ground that the two of you can agree together on because sometimes it is just to difficult to try to get someone to see things the way you see them. You can spend a life time trying to change someone, and never get no where even close to the person accepting or respecting your way of doing things.
