This series is an alphabetical exploration of 26 options for living well, despite everything. It answers the question–How can we live well, despite problems? Say Yes frequently; in other words, be agreeable. That is not to say that I must always agree with you (that would make me a doormat. There are times, seasons, and occasions where it’s right to say NO!).
To be agreeable reasonably, is not to always say Yes, but to be ready and willing to agree, to have a mindset that is pleasant, amiable, likeable, sympathetic, warm, considerate, kind and gracious. When I actively listen, with an attitude that you have a point of view worth considering, I am being agreeable. Let’s agree to prefer cooperation and harmony over antagonism and suspicion. Okay? (Say yes!) How do you minimize unnecessary contentions and quarrels?
