Books and arguments
If you have a great book, you can’t put it down. You’re completely immersed in it. You get frustrated by anyone or anything that pulls you away from it.
An observant friend noticed how similar it is when stubborn people argue. Each is immersed in their own ideas. They get frustrated by anyone or anything that pulls them away from it.
So what do you do?
Be like the moon and reflect all their passion and enthusiasm back. Only after they’ve covered all the details, ask how open they’d be to an alternative perspective.
If they’ve already made a decision or are set in their ways, there’s no need to argue.
Thanks for caring!
