Winning isn’t everything!

“The aim of an argument or discussion should not be victory, but progress.”

~ Joseph Joubert (1754-1824) French Philosopher

As children, we are taught to win and sometimes at any cost. For sporting competitions, battles, war and personal achievement this may be true but when it comes to human relationships, it doesn’t apply. The only way people can succeed at growing closer together is to work at progression, not separation. Make a point from this day forward not to have to win when arguing but rather attempt to bring whomever you’re arguing with closer to you and you closer to them through progressive reasoning. In friendship, arguments shouldn’t be about who wins but more about agreeing to disagree agreeably.
