Seeing the other’s perspective can help with forgiveness

When you are able to see things from another person’s perspective, then you are able to ask for forgiveness and to grant forgiveness. – Rabbi YY Jacobson

When someone does something that causes you pain, it often helps to put yourself in the other person’s shoes. Try to see the situation from their perspective. Instead of seeing the other person as an adversary, try to understand what might be going on for them. Are they dealing with something that has nothing to do with you? Are they stressed? Is it possible that they didn’t understand the whole context?
Try to remember the other person’s good qualities, assume that their motives were not to purposely cause you pain (unless you have clear indicators otherwise), and you may find it easier to forgive. 

J.O.T. [Just One Thing]

Through the years, many clients and students have reached out for guidance and support. They came seeking encouragement and assistance with relationship challenges. They asked tough questions. They explored their role in the relationship. They enhanced their communication and conflict resolution skills.  They adopted productive mindsets that helped them enrich their marriage, family life and so many other aspects of their lives.

Adai Ad’s (JOT) Just One Thing series was developed to share short and practical relationship insights, tools and mindsets every morning (via whatsapp and social media). These are widely received all over the world.
