Tutored in math

I just had an interesting experience with some online mathematicians. I “thought” I understood the problem because I knew of one “like” it previously. I told them they were wrong and showed them why. They very patiently walked me through the problem several times answering my different objections. I finally agreed with them at about the fourth go round.

Learning the math was valuable.

Learning the “non-math” was invaluable.

I will now endeavor to listen to someone completely first so that I can explain their position back to them better than they can (1). I will ask questions to see if my assumption that I already “know” something about this new subject is true or not. I will open up myself to be influenced more readily if I hope to be able to have any influence to return (1).

The following is a verse I must relearn over and over:
James 4:6b (NASB95)

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
