It sure is hard to talk to strangers these days. So, we end up spending time around people who agree with us. But that’s no way to learn new perspectives on things.
And we already know what the solution is. We should listen to others with the goal of understanding them instead of trying to change them. There are even recipes available for how to “Speak Your Peace” from well-established local groups.
But how can we control ourselves and stay in a conversation when our discussion partners push our buttons? How can we maintain our composure, keep cool, and continue to listen?
I’ll report what I’ve learned about this lately. As a musical arranger, I’m interested in generating harmony (but never unison) among Earthlings.
