2. Get coffee with someone who thinks differently.
If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies. — Saint Teresa of Calcutta
Most of us know at least one person (hopefully more) who thinks differently than we do when it comes to politics and religion. Most of us probably know and love people who have views we find repulsive. Snag that person the next time you see them and invite them out. Talk to them. Hear them out. You may not come to agreement on everything but you will walk away with more understanding, more compassion. And our world needs more of that. (Personally, I don’t think this usually works well online, where there is too much room for misunderstanding.) Source
