Another Perspective

It is very difficult for me to see a situation from another person’s perspective. If you find yourself in a group conversation where you think someone is acting irrationally, stop speaking immediately. Either tune out of the conversation or excuse yourself from the room. Then, make up two possibilities of that person’s life situation or intention could be that help you relate to them. Pick one that you like the most. Go back to the conversation and listen to that person from that imagined perspective. This helps me a lot!
