Debate habits of thought

This is a warning...

It isn't too late to change
your mind

(some) debaters seem to think
that a change in mind
is somehow a sign of weakness

that's bull
it is a sign of strength
it is a sign of character
it is a sign of intelligence

to be able to..
admit you were wrong
to hold two seemingly contradicting positions
is a sign of a complex mind
a human mind
a real person

a mature person
sees themselves in flux, always
because they are in flux

a mature person
allows others the chance
to change their minds

a mature person
gives a little
forgives a little and
understands that others aren't perfect
no matter how much you'd like them to be
like you
