Day 12/30 Challenge.

As the train platform began to fill I noticed the different shoes the travellers wore.

I wondered about their different lifestyles and different aspirations.

I remembered the advice to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes”. That is, to consider their motivations, fears and what they care about. Especially when:

◉ trying to engage with them

◉ negotiating

◉ handling conflict

  • I look at the image and words, and I am reminded that the most powerful moments of learning how to walk in someone else’s shoes are immersive experiences. A real gem in life not to be missed.

      Great point Justine. Yes when we can experience how others see their world it broadens our perspectives. By having an understanding and appreciation of other’s experience I become more patient, compassionate and accepting of what I might have otherwise dismissed or ignored.
