Challenged

Disagreeing is not always a bad thing.   Agreeing isn’t always a good thing.  Discussing things usually works out for me.   So that’s my go-to way of resolving issues, finding answers, or just assuring myself I looked at everything the best way I could.

During one discussion today someone said something to me then they stopped themselves and said “no, that’s not a good word”.   Then they said to me “I challenge you”.

I’ve been thinking about it all day.

I accept the challenge.

Because it’s worth it.

  1. Exactly my attitude. I questione a lot of things but I’m just looking for answers.

    Hmm. So unlike to to take on a new challenge. Grin. “Back to back they faced each other…”

    “Not a good word” comment made me think a lot about your challenge you decided to accept.
    I feel if you think it is worth it. Okay.

    This is an interesting perspective. I’m very open to discussion when I think we’re not debating. Sometimes when a conversation moves towards a debate, which can be challenging, I’m just unsure that in debate listening stays active. Maybe I am not patient enough. That could very well be. 🙂

    • Interesting Debra, because I’ve been reading alot about active listening. Yesterday I read that listening to respond is not the same as listening to understand. And THAT is a challenge I want to take up.
