The best thing about having a good relationship with someone is the ability to disagree in a healthy way. The other day I had a really good conversation with someone who completely disagreed with me on a contentious issue. No insults were thrown. No personal attacks were mounted. It was just a really good conversation.

Having those conversations can be hard. But having them with people who love you and care about you is a good place to start. And decide that it’s not about being right. It’s about seeing the other point of view.

If you can learn this skill, you’ll be able to learn and understand so much more.
