It always baffles me when we enter into discussion, and within said discussion, we move to a place of disrespecting and treating someone in an inhumane way, all because the end goal is we NEED to be right? I'm not a confrontational person, I do not care to argue and yet I truly enjoy great discussions. I love to debate things, which is a two way conversation. So when there is talking over the other person, raised voices, and tempered outbursts, I will choose to end the discussion.
I can say, you are right, if that comes to be. I'm OK with that. But in most cases, I would say that the point is to be redemptive. If being right means you devalue, disrespect, and dehumanize someone then count me out. I'll choose to lose. You can be right, just please don't treat another person as less than a person.
I choose redemptive conversation
