We were always taught to never judge a book by its cover.

When it comes to ourselves, we always have reasons to justify our behaviors.

However, we don’t always want to see things from other people’s perspectives.

When we interact with people, there is bound to be some disagreements

When another person said something that you felt was disrespectful or uncalled for, you can respond by getting aggravated and angry or seek ways to get revenge.

However, this will affect your health in a negative way, and it will take away your peace of mind and your inner peace.

Instead, take a moment to put yourself “in the other person’s shoes.”

Maybe they are under stress or tired, which caused them say or do something offensive. Or maybe they misunderstood you.

Think of what you would have wanted to be treated if you were in their position.

For your sake, let it go. Find ways to judge them favorably and don’t allow anyone to take away your happiness. Nothing is worth ruining your day.
