Talking to a friend yesturday I realised something, while it’s no secret that I’m stubborn, I’m also teachable: walking-talking oxymoron at your service 😀
Yes I’m an opinionated person, but whenever someone with a contrasting viewpoint takes the time to sit down and have a discussion with me I’m all ears, genuinely! Because believe it or not I actually enjoy being proven wrong (partially because it’s just such a rare occurrence…I joke, I joke). But seriously, whenever someone brings to light a golden nugget of information that I may not have previously considered/been aware of, it shakes me up a bit. It makes me question myself and the opinion that I hold and I love that because being so cocksure all the time can get boring!
I guess that’s why I love debates, they get my juices flowing and open my eyes just that little bit more. And they make me realise that I don’t have all the answers (as much as I may try to assure myself and those around me that I do!). At the end of the day I’m just a 22 year old small town girl and I still have a lot to learn about the world. And while I may come across as being overly headstrong at times, I’m more than happy to take a step back and be the student when I need to be and absorb new information like a sponge, because that’s the point of life isn’t it? Progressing and learning? So hopefully I’m on the right track. 🙂
