Hold your ideas lightly

I heard a phrase today:

“Hold your ideas lightly.”

Just four words, but perhaps the solution for what ails us in our divided society. Our beliefs, our ideas, become so ingrained in our identities that we can’t have a discussion about them without feeling personally affronted by opposing views. Why do we hold onto these ideas so tightly? Why are we so afraid of the prospect of changing our minds when different perspectives come to light?

What would change if we learned to hold our ideas lightly?
