You never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.
– Harper Lee, writer

Viewing the world though another’s eyes

When baby-proofing a room, what is the best way to do it? You get down on the ground and see the world through the eyes of your baby. Never before have such dangers and opportunities for mischief been so apparent! The same is true with relationships. Many times you may try to empathize with a person by saying “I know how you feel.” But do you really? When a person cuts you off in traffic, do you curse them under your breath or throw an angry gesture? What if that person is really just having a hard day, dealing with an unruly toddler in the backseat? Attempting to view the world through another person’s eyes builds empathy and thus a deeper understanding of that person. Think about others you conflict with before jumping to conclusions.
