Why It’s Important to Listen to Those You Disagree With

  1. Very well written. My challenge is to reel in the desire to argue or be defensive when encountering different opinions. It is also important that you reliquish the idea of being right. It satisfies my ego to get the last word in, but in the end its a losing proportion.

  2. Honestly says:

    Listening to different viewpoints can help make yours stronger. You tend to gain empathy or compassion because of hardship that you went through. In the context of ending a marriage that was abusive, there aren’t two viewpoints to consider. Mine was a man’s choice fueled by his friends egotistical right to “lord” over a woman.
