XD Well in other words it kinda means something like this...

Let's say u get in a fight about the stupidest thing like.. for say Getting in a fight with your friend. You get all frustrated over the fight cause you both have different opinons. Let's say the fight was about who was right and who was wrong. In your own defence you would of course follow through on your side BUT never stop to think about how or what ur friend feels. So in other word 'Viewing, from the other side' in this situation means that you should stop, and review the situation you are in and see thing on someone else point of view rather than your own.

XD Hope this helps any.

umm... let me put it this way. When you have a problem with another person... lets say over a guy/girl... like imagine what you would feel when your as the other person... XD its hard to explain. But imagine yourself as that person and what would you think differently about the situation. Its like putting yourself in their shoes. Hope I helped...

Here's a good example: I place a glass of water on the table. I then tell you that it is 1/2 full. That is true, but I could also say with complete mathimatical truth that the glass is 1/2 empty. It depends on where you start (the bottom or the top of the glass). In order to see thing from another point of view, I assume that I am one end of the glass and then try to swap sides. Try this:

Q: Is a piece of watermolon sweet?

A: Two answers-can you guess them?

A2: (Yes) If you have not had anything sweet recently or even something sour, then the watermelon will be sweet. (No) If you have had something sweet like ice cream, then the watermelon will taste like water and have no sweetness. Both answers depend on a different starting 'location". This can be translated also as a 'point of view'. Seeing things differently takes practice so don't give up! Take care. Sayonara. :)!
