One of the most delicious things I find is when you have intellectual conversations. The different perspectives, when you can share difference of opinions and ideas. It’s not about talking down to one another. It’s about active listening and allowing the person to explain their perspective without jumping to conclusions and name calling.
It’s about actually hearing our differences without judgement. One of the things I look forward to once a month is the exchange of ideas with each other. Sometimes we get so excited about sharing information or perspectives that we start to talk over each other in our excitement of sharing. It’s not meant to be disrespectful.
It makes it even more interesting when you have people from different walks of life within different parts of your own country or even more when you have different people from different countries. It’s about sharing and not insulting one another. It’s about respecting one another and not teaching hate.
Because of the wide variety of topics that come up within the group. It sometimes feels like we’re going to an all you can eat buffet. It’s sad when the night comes to an end and we have to say our goodbye’s for the night. Until the next time we get together to share our ideas and more conversations. Life is about having moments of enjoyment. Be sure you find the time to play and enjoy conversation with interesting people.
