    Wear The Other Shoes

    I do try very hard whenever I'm in conflict to try and see the other viewpoint.  I find imagining what it's like to be them very useful in achieving this.  Ultimately it's a courtesy though and unreturned courtesies usually dry up. In the case of more general issues I do try...

    The Other Side... I always take a step back

    and look at the other side. In this case I had taken a step back three times. The first was when you decided to push me aside for another....you had a 5 year plan. I was happy for you...as I'm married and couldn't offer you what you needed. The second was when you went to...
