walk a mile in her shoes

This is one of my favorite reminders. It’s one of my “back pocket” thoughts that I pull out whenever I need more understanding of a situation.
how is she feeling?
what might have driven her to say this?
is there something else going on?
could i be missing something in this situation?
what motivates her?

Sometimes I forget to look at what’s going on from a new angle. But it’s eyeopening and gives more color to the story. It also prevents me from jumping to conclusions or giving unfair judgement to the situation.
What’s your “back pocket” thought?

Being intentional and true (to myself, others, situations). Perspective and being able to keep a sense of humour about situations is something I'm always thinking about too.
