Perspective

Perspective; any kind of insight into life can be a trap if others are not listened to as well.  It is as if we all have a small piece of the puzzle, the more we listen and learn, the bigger our piece gets.  If we feel the need to always seek to convince others of our stance, then we may be doing the opposite of what we want.  When others know that you respect them, then it is easier to for them to listen, as well as for you to learn from them.  Hard asses have little influence on others; they are ignored since they turn themselves into a stereotype, or straw man or woman, diminishing their personhood.   Easy to do, just like falling off a log, to lose ones balance takes no effort, learning does.  When we speak we create ourselves for the one who is with us, we fill in the blanks, and the color and it depth and beauty (or not) depends on us.  Listening and speaking are arts well worth learning.
