Seems to me that the easy bit is “being right”. The tricky bit is “doing right”.
Science told me a long time ago that if my bubble is not growing, it is NOT staying the same – it is shrinking. So I can shrink my bubble ever smaller … I can demand that you live in my bubble and obey my rules … or I can learn to acknowledge my own bubble … or something I have learned that is now my truth:
I can breathe more easily outside of my bubble.

Recognize that you are not right about everything. You may be wrong. Or, partially wrong. Or, it may have nothing to do with right or wrong. Just different. Different childhoods. Different baggage people carry with them. Different communities people live in. Different experiences they’ve had. Different shows people watch. Different books people read. Different temples people attend.
Having friends who are just like you, and dismissing those who are different, is no great accomplishment. Indeed, it smacks of high school all over again. So, now that you’re an adult, it’s time to recognize that you’ve got a cognitive bias. What’s that?
It’s making inferences about others from your subjective reality, but believing your opinions are the absolute truth.
