Explaining yourself oftentimes doesn't work, because you have to keep in mind that folks are gonna see things through THEIR perspective. It doesn't matter how off that perspective is-their perspective oftentimes is the ONLY one that matters.
That pesky perspective thing
Yep....known too many people who never take into account that old maxim about 'walking in the other man's shoes" I always try to see all sides of an issue. Thus the reason that I said in an earlier post that neither side is completely right or completely wrong...
Again that pesky perspective thing...hurt feelings...anger....wanting something the other person wasn't giving her emotionally or whatever...whether they understood what she was expecting from them or not. We don't know what happened in whatever conversations went on between these people
Maybe a basic lack of communications between both groups....were they talking too or AT each other....very big difference between the two things
We each empathize with one side or the other in this case...depending on our own life experiences as to which side.
