Have you ever wanted to know how to listen to someone when you don't agree with them? Depending on the topic and your difference of opinion, it can start to feel like someone is actually trying to cram their opinion down your throat. Most of us have two default responses. And neither of them seems to avoid things turning really awkward.

This week we're turning to video to answer one of our reader's questions about how to listen.

"What the heck do you do when someone has a strong opinion that you don't agree with and it starts to get really awkward?"

We've all been there!
