Often we do not listen, we hear, but do not listen. That is because we are fearful of being wrong with our own views, or scared that the polarised camp we are in may well be wrong too.
Very few things are so simple as to be a case of one option or the other and that is what we are frightened of, so it is easier to shut down, close off, hide, pretend there is no other view.
Take a moment to choose to embrace the opposite view more than the one you currently believe, walk a mile in the other sides shoes, put on their lens for a day. Change the lens and see another view and look without evaluation or judgement, just observe.
Maybe, just maybe, we would be able to come together as a human race instead of being hatefully apart.
