    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...

    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.

    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...
