There Is A Fine Line
And Taking A Stand
It’s OK to take a stand but it’s best to take it carefully, cautiously and with a bit of humility. The more adamantly you take your stand now, the more embarrassed you’ll be when you later move.
A stand gives us a sense of stability. It makes us feel secure for the moment, like holding a rail on a train ride. But perspectives change and we might eventually find our beliefs challenged by more experience and a different consideration. Those things count.
The foundation has already been laid. We only need find it. Making the assumption you’re there and digging may not be the most appropriate response.
So take your stand but do it without conceit or harsh judgment for opposing ideas. The middle is not always off center.
