Has it ever happened to you that you don’t understand somebody else’s decisions? You have to walk in a lot of different shoes for completely understanding a matter. First thing that comes to your mind is that they are wrong. You feel that they are not seeing the obvious and the right things. But, can everybody be right? Everybody should stand for their principles but also listen to other people. For understanding completely a problem it is necessary that people see problems from different angles, so they can see all the options or solutions that a problem or a situation might have.

When someone disagrees with you, you don’t like it. Most people think that they are seeing the problem from the right point of view and that the other person is seeing it from the wrong point of view. It is very important for people to be open to new and different ideas. By accepting critics and opinions people might learn more and could be helped. The best way to know what angle is the best for seeing or approaching a situation is by trying different points of views.

A situation might have different solutions. Some might be easier some might be harder. Some might be longer and some might be shorter. That means that everybody could be right, just in a different way. It is very important to accept different opinions and critics and not being closed to accept changes. So if somebody doesn’t agree with you or doesn’t think the same as you, that doesn’t mean he is wrong. It just means that that person is seeing the situation from a different point of view, not necessarily wrong, it could even be right, just in a different way.

It is true that you should hold on to your ideas and die with them. But you can’t just go through life just ignoring everything that people say to you, every comment or suggestion they make. You need to hear them; because they are probably right, you should put yourself in their shoes to know what they are really thinking or what they really mean.

Seeing a situation from another person’s point of view it’s very important for a person. Because you would open new ways of thinking, new horizons, different thoughts, diversity and the most important reason is that you could understand somebody else’s decision.
