Nonsense or No-Sense

Sometimes in conflict we determine the other person’s perspective as ‘nonsense’. Perhaps, it isn’t ‘nonsense’. That is, something that seems to be ‘nonsense’ to us likely makes sense to the other person. Asking for clarity on her or his point of view and ensuring the other person understands our viewpoint might make more sense. Or, trying to put ourselves in the other person’s shoes may help before we ask.

If you put yourself in the other person’s shoes about what occurred between you in a recent conflict, what makes sense to you that didn’t before?
