    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...

    The Moral Of This Story

    A little bird was flying south for the Winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was...

    Because I'm totally aware

    that people have different motivations and viewpoints and so to truly accept and be accepted I believe in educated reasoning rather than biased bigotry

    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?

    I've always accepted their are often different

    valid ways of seeing the same situation whose 'sense' is better discerned by that person rather than some arbitrary "This is the only right answer" approach even if there are somethings that do lend themselves to that approach. I hope in my encounters with people face to face...

    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...

    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.
