Blog: There's More to the Story
There are two sides to every situation.
Both perspectives are right when the person is looking at things from their side.
It’s like a book. When you hold it up, one person sees the cover, one person sees the back. Both are looking at the same book just from different angles.
I felt really hurt & misunderstood in a particular situation once. Someone explained this concept to me & it really opened my eyes. Even though I felt justified & completely right, a different perspective helped me to think about the situation from a different point of view. I’ve learned that we all hear things through the filter of our experiences & personalities because it’s what we have to reference. But as we mature & choose to see things from someone else’s vantage point, life becomes much easier to understand.
