Teachable

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 πŸ˜€

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,Β 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. πŸ™‚

  1. It is actually a very rare thing πŸ™‚ it does take a lot of courage to give a person an opportunity to question you . You are absolutely on the right track πŸ™‚

  2. This post explains why you “Liked” my Quote of the Day on March 9th πŸ™‚ You may be a “Small Town Girl” (lucky you!), but you’re definitely not small minded. Wisdom begins with knowing that we don’t know it all. I sense that you are one who is wise beyond your years. Wishing you a lovely and expansive day ~ Lisa

  3. always wanting to have exchange of opinion. space to share my view, and space to hear their view and their support/sources. Even if i don’t get convinced I am grateful to be made aware of differing opinions and so be more questioning of my own beliefs.
