Obviously, you can’t concur with anybody on everything, nor do you need to. In the event that you did, you wouldn’t have the option to persuade your crowd to change their position. What you can do, in any case, is have a pleasant mentality that recognizes the thinking behind what they accept and the decisions they’ve made.
