Does disagreeing with someone mean they should perish or are evil? Is the world really that black and white?
There’s the old Asian practice of “Saving Face” but nowadays more people seem to practice punching face.
So what does it come down to? Do you communicate with others in ways that lead to resolution of issues? Do you give and take in situations?
Does it spread to our relationships? I look at divorce rates and it seems the younger that people are the higher the divorce rate.
Do you listen to people? How many times do you ask someone a question and never get an answer related to the question? I have this happen all the time!
Do you think this is connected to the lack of courtesy we seem to have nowadays? Do you open doors or hold them for people? Do you let people into line? When their flasher is on while driving do you let them in or zoom forward?
When in the eye of the storm do you let your emotions rule? Do you empathize with the other party? Do you seek “common ground” and give and take to be able to truly move forward?
