    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?

    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...
