If you are anything like me, you probably don’t enjoy engaging in debates with people who have differing points of view.  Be it politics, religion, or whatever hot topic of the day, it’s easier to dodge the conversation than it is to dive-in.  Because, let’s be honest, the likelihood of either party changing their minds is slim….right?  So we avoid the conversation.  Heck, sometimes we avoid the interaction altogether!  We see all these exchanges as obstacles in our lives.  But what if, instead of obstacles, we saw them as opportunities?  A slight change in perspective might just go a long way.
