Seek first to understand and then to be understood. The surest path to an argument is to have two people both bent on making the other one understand. In any of the relationships in life it is essential that you can put yourself in a mindset that you can see things from the other person’s point of view. As you have that vantage point you are also in the best position to make yourself understood.
