Daily Lift #801

See Both Points of View

To get along with other people, it is essential to be able to see things from their point of view -- even if you disagree with them.

Realize that no two people view things exactly the same way. For example, Rabbi Yisrael Salanter said that taking away a broken box from a child is equivalent to sinking the boat of an adult.

Being aware of how someone else perceives a matter will decrease the chances of a quarrel -- even though you might disagree.

(Michtav M'Eliyahu, vol.1, p.99; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness,p.141)
