Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 832 People

    Always

    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...

    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...

    No matter what I do, I always mess things up. I feel like I can't do anything right. When something goes wrong, I usually blame myself. You name it, I've probably done it wrong.
