I Try To Understand Things From Other Peoples Point Of View

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 452 People

    My dad always played devils advocate,

    lol but hated when we did the same. Being bullied taught me to try and see things from other's point of view. Sometimes they are not trying to be mean, just dealing with their own copying mechanisms

    I really do try to see your point of view.

    So please stop stopping me from trying to place my head on the inside of your intestines

    One of the problems of dealing with other

    people is that they come with a specific point of view. Often based on their experiences, which is fair enough. But unless you know what their experiences are. Unless you understand how they came to be who they are now. You can't hope to help them.
