What If You’re the One That’s Wrong?

But what if we approached disagreements differently?

When disagreements arise, I’m right and you’re wrong. That’s how everyone approaches arguments. Myself included. I’m right until I’m proven otherwise, and even then, my pride won’t let me admit I’m wrong enough to change my mind anyway.

But what if we approached disagreements differently?

What if you’re the one that’s wrong instead of the opponent? How would you approach it differently? Rather than approaching the disagreement on the offensive, what if it was an exploration instead? What if you’re the one that’s wrong, not them?

Would you put your ego aside and try to learn, coaxing their arguments out and understanding, rather than attacking, searching for the truth?

How much different would our world be if we all approached conversations and disagreements this way?

Would we have as many wars? What about the political toxicity we live in?

What would happen if you’re the one that’s wrong, not them?
