I like to debate. I like to discuss, hear people’s points of view, and build on my own. What I don’t like is speaking with someone who refuses to acknowledge my point of view and uses loud interruptions to scare me into silence. It’s in these moments that, despite knowing my stance and how to express it, my confidence shrivels up along with my ability to articulate, and I wish I had a cheat sheet to glance at.
So, I thought I would make one.
