Questions First

The other night I was chatting with some friends.

We were talking about controversial topics like what’s happening at the moment in America.

There are some topics like this that are very polarising.

When people hear these things being said, they instantly go to one side and prepare to fight against the other.

It’s a difficult thing to manage in a conversation.

How can you have these interesting and heated discussion, without offending the other people?

I think the solution is in asking questions.

If you are genuinely curious about what people think, then you are just seeking to learn and not on anyone’s side.

This means you can still have a great discussion, but you come away having learnt some things, rather than feeling divided.

In todays age, controversial conversations like these happen all the time. In my opinion, it’s best to approach them with a questions first attitude.
