My Life On Postcards

Open Mind

Dear Jane, Keeping an open mind is not that easy, especially when the argument grows increasingly emotional. In fact, when the argument is not about the thing in itself anymore but everything but that, I tend to loose orientation. And besides, open-mindedness only really seems to function in a somewhat equal relationship, whatever the definition of that might be. I found it incredible, how emotions, which tend to be a true response to our surrounding, can disable my rational mind and leave me with nothing else than a sentiment that I can not put into words no matter what language I am trying to use.
