insular

Being aware of different perspectives and points of view is healthy. I didn’t say “embrace” but “aware”.

Otherwise we become so insular we die to the others around us.

We die. They die. We become dead to each other.

I was going to add that we also lose the ability to be effective in positively influencing others, but the ability to influence others pales in comparison to being dead to each other.

Insularity kills.
