Okay I know what you all are thinking, alright maybe 85% of you are. Naughty Naughty! But now that I have your attention, how often do you ever wish you knew what or how someone else was thinking? I know that there are enough instances in life where I've thought, why on earth is he/she reacting or behaving like that? Do you remember hearing your parents or a teacher when we were younger saying, "Try putting yourself in their shoes."? I can remember my common quick come back too. "Well I'm not them so how can I think like they do and I'd never behave like that to begin with, they must not have a brain" or some stupid and cheesy come back would spring from my lips. Yet in Theatre training in my early teens it was common when we did improve to be given a role or a situation and then have to try to think and behave as accurately as we thought. Well years later when dealing with very complicated or touchy situations I've found myself trying that again. How would I react were I in those same situations? What would I do? What would I say? There always seems to be multiple answers too. I never truly realized that role playing like this, even if it's only in one's mind, can be extremely useful and be used to gauge our own actions and reactions. Perhaps some view it as giving excuses to those with poor behaviour but the truth is, we simply don't know all the circumstances behind everyone and therefore we can know how they are going to act or react. Sometimes thinking about others changes how I might automatically act or react at a given time. Other times it let's me know by their reaction how I need to respond. It never truly hurts though to try and put yourself in another's shoes now and again. Simply imagine quickly first. Sometimes it's a very useful and can save a great deal of hurts and heartaches. Just imagine.

Great blog, MA! We're going through a LOT of changes at work, and the atmosphere has been very tense for everyone. It really does help take the edge off to look at other perspectives. Makes it easier to stay reasonable. Thanks for the reminder!
