I admit to strongly held political opinions. I want everyone to agree with me, but I know this is not going to happen. What disturbs me, though, is not the absence of agreement, but the polarization and acrimony. We seem more divided now than ever. My tendency is to want to argue.
What I am learning is that I need to listen. Carefully. I need to look for common ground, to break out of my filter bubble, to seek diverse perspectives, and have real conversations. I need to watch for bias in my information sources, and notice my own biases. I want to better understand the world — and you.
