Passion is Polarizing
Passion can be polarizing. Passion fuels emotion and emotions can turn conversations into games, battles, or wars to be won. If I am passionate about my stance, I am not looking to change my mind. If I notice that I don’t share a passion with another person, it might be best to avoid the topic. Energy and time are finite. We don’t have to fight to convert everyone to our personal point of view. Great teammates focus on what they have in common and refuse to label someone as an opponent once they disagree.
