How To Communicate With Someone Who Doesn’t Think Like Me

A 21st-century Primer:

Decide intentionally.
Listen honestly.
Disagree passionately.
Argue necessarily.
Forgive quickly.
Persuade respectfully.
Celebrate privately.
Love constantly.
All… simultaneously.

Echo chambers are loud, lonely places.
Speeches are easy. Dialogue is hard.
But there are things to learn and stories to hear if we’ll stretch.
Risk it.
Step out.
If you don’t get it quite right, try again. And again.
Just try.
