I often witness or myself get caught in conversations where there is no real discussion. What I mean is that each person is sharing what they are comfortable with, but there is no will to build a common story. ‘’What you were saying and why it was important doesn’t seem to matter, it just bounced off.’’ It is challenging to enter a discussion. What you get into might challenge your beliefs but you don’t have to be convinced. You might also learn something along the way by getting a better perspective on what feels unknown or far from your frame of reference. To have a real discussion we need to be open to be changed.
