It is important to see from others point of view because it helps you understand how they are feeling.  Also understanding another’s point of view is the best way to validate your own. It can also give a better understanding of how to reach an agreement with someone. Instead of just seeing from one side of the situation we see both. Also its never wrong to agree to disagree.

Another reason why it is important to see things from another person’s point of view is because it is healthy for relationships. A friend or spouse who insist that things be done their way and their way only usually end up alone. People want to feel valued, and when one person in a relationship won’t take the other person’s perspective into consideration, the other person feels devalued. For example if your girlfriend doesn’t want you to go to party and you go anyway, she will get mad but what she doesn’t know is that you would never do anything to hurt her.

When seeing things from another’s perspective open your mind to learn new things. It also gives someone time to reevaluate your response if you are wrong or need some correction. Seeing both sides is very important when in an argument. It is normal for us to put more importance in other people’s mistakes instead of the mistakes we make. This is because we are blind. People judge others instead of correcting the mistakes we make, when you come to realize your mistakes and are mature enough to help others with their mistakes and not just judging and making other people feel bad. A simple act of kindness can make someone’s day. We don’t know what people go through at home. With that being said we have no right to bully or judge anyone.
