That is why time slows down for accelerating objects- time is not absolute. That is one of Einstein's postulates. If time were absolute, then an object's time would not slow down when it acclerates. But, because time is not absolute, this isn't true and an object's time slows down through acceleration or the presence of a gravitational field. Your argument is correct, but it doesn't support your previous comment.
