Often times our opinions and conclusions come from a certain perspective. One that we are usually used to. While there is consistency in that, it also impedes the opportunity to look at things from different angles and that is unfortunate. Sometimes things can happen and if you have a fixed mindset, you might not be able to see the positives in them, which is what you would need to get you out of that mind rut. We need to be open to calmly listen to different sides without compromising our values which is hard for most people because that usually gets conflated in discussions. One possible way to navigate this is to be open and really knowing your facts yet at the same time, have no intention to prove that you are right and the other party is not.
