I adore good discussions. Real talks. Genuine conversations. Call them what you will, they are fantastic. What I am realizing are the essential components of such talks.
First of all, every member of the discussion must be willing to participate. People who are dragged in contribute nothing positive. Secondly, lastly, and most importantly, people must be open to new ideas. They needn’t accept other opinions, but without at least entertaining those ideas, nothing can be gained.
It’s all about finding further insight into your own views and broadening your understandings. It may be a small epiphinette, but definitely worth remembering.
