Why They Do What They Do


Before you criticize a man,
walk a mile in his shoes.
- Anonymous

You never really understand a person
until you consider things from his point of view.
- Harper Lee

Understanding is a two-way street.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Everything that irritates us about others
can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
- Carl Jung

Stop! Breathe deeply.
Begin bringing peace to the outer world
by regaining your own inner peace.
Choose love, choose gratitude,
choose forgiveness, choose peace.
Begin with your own inner peace.
Then use that inner peace
as a platform from which
to approach the outer world
with perspective, understanding, and patience.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Consider the other person's true motivations. Try to visualize yourself in their shoes. If you can see that they are motivated by love, forgive any lack of skill or lack of tangible accomplishment.
