The Art of Agreeing to Disagree
Tuesday, July 11, 2017

This is when we each allow the other to have his or her own opinions and concur that what we have in common is greater and more enduring than our differences. The process of agreeing to disagree involves understanding that there is more than one valid perspective on any given topic and that it is possible to disagree with another without feeling personally diminished or defeated because we have not convinced the other that our way is right.
