“No one really knows enough to be a pessimist.” -Norman Cousins
Close the conversation on a positive note. “It was good to see you. Thank you for your time. I look forward to seeing you again. It was nice talking with you.” All of these and other positive phrases are great ways to end a conversation. It is especially important to utter positive statements at the close of a conversation if opposing perspectives are shared. Let the person know that you appreciate them.
