    please help!

    We're pleased that you are willing to share our views.

    I think share is a misused word in the sentence when you want to say: We're pleased that you are willing to have our views. Am I right?

    No, it is not misused if you meant to say that "we are pleased that you are willing to have the same views (as we do). Share +view is a natural collocation.

    Thanks! However, the intended meaning is : We're pleased that you are willing to listen to our voice , to understand what is in our mind. In that case, is share a misused word?
