Have you ever said something and you knew that it was wrong as soon as you said it?
What happened next? Sometimes we find ourselves defending our position even after we realize that our position is flawed or even downright incorrect. Why do we do that?
We have the freedom when we are communicating to change our minds. We have the freedom to re-state what we said, to reframe it in a way that makes more sense, to come to terms with a better truth.
We don't have to defend something just because we said it. Maybe we shouldn't have said it to begin with!
