Recently I witnessed a discussion where a prominent point of view shared was filled with insistence. It was the feeling created that troubled me. Full of emotion and strength of voice, it appears strong with misleading confidence.
When insistence is present, there is no listening. It overtakes a discussion like weeds in a garden. Based on emotion, it feeds emotion. Leaving logic stranded without an ear to listen.
Be careful when you find yourself trapped by insisting. Very rarely do others listen or follow when it is present. For life evolves and grows in community and collaboration with others. No matter how different their point of view. Always.
