    There Is Always Another Side Of The Story

    Dealing with many people on a daily basis, everywhere from extremely pissed off to completey elated and everything in between, I always want to see the other side of the story before I make a decision or back one person's opinion of a situation or issue. This has carried over...

    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

    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...

    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.
