Black Lives Matter Solution
We have all heard the term “Narrow minded,” but very few people understand what it truly means. This is the main reason why the conflict between, “Black Lives Matters” and police keeps escalating. Read this blog and discover the secret to solving this conflict and healing society.
Understanding [span]“Narrow Mindedness”[/span]
Imagine if you were walking through a jungle and a lion suddenly jumped out of a bush. Your body would instinctively go into survival mode and either freeze, run, or fight. You wouldn’t try to reason with the lion – and even if you tried you would be unable to because the part of your brain that enables you to be reasonable would temporarily stop functioning. Your brain would literally become narrow minded.
When people are narrow minded they’re not rational or open to receiving opposite viewpoints – even if they would normally agree with those viewpoints. And the more you try to force them to agree with your viewpoints the more they will double down and fight. And they’ll even build an army of people that share their viewpoints.
This is what is happening to Black Lives Matter and police supporters. They all believe that their perspectives are right and need to be protected. And even though it’s just perspectives, the body still reacts as if it was being attacked by a lion and makes people believe that protecting their beliefs is a matter of life and death. They become “narrow minded.”
How to stop [span]narrow mindedness…[/span]
To make a narrow minded person’s brain normal again they need to feel heard and understood. Calmly listen to their perspectives without interrupting or judging (even if you don’t agree). If you do this, your empathy towards them will cause them to stop perceiving you as a threat. And in most cases their brain will begin to function normally again, and then they’ll be a lot more open to hearing yours.
Preventing narrow mindedness is the first and most important step in finding a solution to this crisis. After all if we can’t have open minded dialogue to address the problems…we will never get to the solutions.
