Each of us needs to have the capacity to hear the things we might not want to hear when a new or different perspective is offered. To be open to listening and to changing is a definitive strength as we continue learning.

There are many opportunities and audiences where we may be more open than not to variant perspectives from others. There is certainly one audience where I will overtly close my mind at once to walk away to learn another day or another way. Life is too short to argue with another only seeking to be right.

Learning for me is a sharing experience. With one seeking to dominate another’s thought only to affirm their own point of view, there is no room for my learning. Be pleasant, but note that there is no need to participate.

“The first rule of handling conflict is don’t hang around people who are constantly engaging in conflict.” — Naval Ravikant —
