how to you embrace different or opposite opinions from yours, instead of being offended or upset or pressured by it?

I want to improve myself in this aspect. In the logic part of my brain, I know that different people have different opinions, different from mine. Sometimes, I am right, sometimes, the others are right. Sometimes, there's no right or wrong. But the emotion part of my brain often get upset by people doing things differently from mine. I am especially sensitive to my parent's opinion and get very mad with them, thinking they are pressuring me to do things their way. But actually, that's not the truth. They intended well, they don't think they are pressuring me. So I guess somehow I can't think straight on this. Do you have suggestions to me? This is a roadblock in my life right now, I would be very happy if I can figure this out. Thanks
