I know this has been said a million times over, in countless threads, but it seems like it just can't be said enough.
If you ignore or shut someone out because their opinions/beliefs/ideologies differ from yours, you are placing a limit on yourself through your own
close-mindedness. It's selfish, juvenile and ignorant. How likely is it that you're right all the time? Or that you're right about all
within a given topic? Or that your "way" is without flaw? You could be harboring a false, preconceived notion or a fallacy that's so deeply
engrained into the fiber of your being that you believe it to be fact/truth and never even realize it. In fact, I would venture to say that we all
fall victim to this in some way or at some point. It's ok to be wrong... really.. it is. Humankind didn't come this far without frequent
error and failure... and yes.. they were mocked and ridiculed along the way.
We have an ocean of unpleasantries before us that will never be resolved if we remain so divided with our hearts and minds closed.
If you agree with this, good, but do me a favor.. Instead of applying this to others in your head.. apply it to yourself. Not kidding... do it.. right
now.... because your flaws are what needs to be worked on.. not everybody else'.
Stifle the ego! Rise above the heat of the moment! End the "end-all-be-all" mentality!
There... just had to get that off my chest.
Captain Convolution over and out.
