People are not just afraid to disagree, they don’t know how to.
Today I was surrounded by a diverse range of beliefs.
Note, this could be used to describe your situation every day.
And the people around me simply did not know how to understand the opposing belief, acknowledge how it differed from their own, and be ok with the differences. Instead they crafted a story, a narrative to make the two beliefs coexist. When in reality they were far from similar.
In a time when truth is so rare, we must learn to stand with it.
