Be understandable

“In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.”

“Seek to understand first, then to be understood.”
—Stepen Covey—

We need to put labor to understand the “other” person’s perspective. When we feel anger rising, we need to let it cease. Listening to others and understanding their perspective will give us more peace. We need to be more concerned with being happy, than being right.
