I Always Try To See The Other Side

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 764 People

    Always

    Whenever I have a disagreement with anyone I try to see their point of view as well as mine. Sometimes I'm right and sometimes it turns out I'm wrong. I'm only human. That's why I try not to get stuck with only one side in my head.

    The 3rd Side

    Because let's face it folks, in any given scenario there are 3 sides to any story, your side, their side and the truth. All that means is both of your realities don't make one single truth when differences are being sorted out. Can you guys dig that action?
