Go back to yesterday, you probably dealt with someone you disagreed with. Or maybe tomorrow at Christmas dinner, you’re going to be confronted with a family member who shares his dissenting viewpoints.
Let’s face it. Every day we encounter people we don’t agree with.
Our gut reaction is to shut out people who disagree with us. We don’t want to hear their opposing views.
But we’re losing out when we shut out those who we disagree with. We’re missing an opportunity to engage and learn about someone else.
That’s why I want to talk about why we need to stop shutting out those you disagree with.
No one out there can honestly say they don’t have a viewpoint someone else may find offensive or disagreeable. Every person thinks in a unique way that may rub another person wrong.
