I watched an interaction between friends where there was cause for one friend to convince the other of a better line of reasoning. They started down the path and stopped when they realized that pursuing the conversation would be an attempt to convince the other party. Wise.
How many times do conflicts erupt because we are trying to convince someone who refuses to change their mind? If it’s not a matter of life or death in that moment, let it go. Revisit the conversation and hope to gain more traction in the next one. Sometimes people just need a little time to marinade on a new idea before adopting it.
