Hello guys, have I told you that one of the reasons I started this blog was when I came to the realisation that I am a kind of person who loves arguing and if given the chance will be able to talk about a topic for hours and hours. This of course led to some issues with friends which in turn led to me posting all thoughts online so that those really interested could always have a read about what I've got to say about this or that issue.
You see, usually when having a discussion with someone, I have a tendency to hold the conversation, giving my interlocutor a chance to speak only when I've expressed myself profusely. I know it's awful and promise that I'm working on it. After all why is it that we worry so much about winning an argument. Just for the sake of winning or because we want to get something through? The answer is quite evident, but surprisingly most of the time we opt for a fight, right?
Then comes in the Socratic method of dealing with arguments. From what I got it's all about asking questions to your partner about what he or she thinks of the situation, rather than going on a head on collision by expressing your thoughts in an aggressive way. And those who know me well, you all know that from time to time I can be quite the "pain in the arse". So, promise everyone to be more Socratic in my approach to argument. Hope this post was inspirational. Just try the method out, remember that "idea sharing" is peace of mind and all this is about "Peace, Love and Unity".
