PERHAPS IT”S TIME TO STOP FIGHTING AND START LISTENING.
Not listening in order to convince others that we’re right and they are wrong, but listening to understand, listening to empathize.
Perhaps its time to remember that our humanity unites us all. We may have conflicting beliefs and strong feelings, but underneath all this we are all human beings.
Sadly we seem to have lost touch with our humanity and that happens when we’re scared.
So how about making a genuine attempt to listen to and understand each other’s fears? and our own fears?
This will not necessarily work in every case, but a lifetime of experience leads me to believe that it’s a move in the right direction.
