The other side of the story

I am sure, at some point in life, you may have experienced that you are judged by people on the basis of their perspective about you. They judge you on the basis of what they heard about you and what they are told by other people. They judge you on the basis of one side of the story and without knowing your side of the story.

There are always two sides to a story. People start judging you without knowing the other side of the story. Nowadays, it has become a habit of people to declare someone characterless, guilty of something or bad person just by listening to one side of the story. People have become so impatient that they don’t wait to listen to the other side of the story before judging someone or making a decision.

You can’t declare a person a thief without knowing his side of the story. A person is innocent until he is proven guilty. You can’t judge someone without listening to his or her side of the story.

When a person tells you about something, he or she describes things in his way. In most cases, people describe things in a way that the story proves them innocent. They tell things in favor of themselves. When two persons describe things, both describe things in a way that it proves them innocent and the other one guilty. When you make a judgement or decision just by listening to one side, it remains an unfair and biased judgement or decision. So always listen to both sides before making a judgement or decision.

There are always two sides to a story.

  1. I always like to remember there are three sides of the story- one persons side, the other persons side and what really happened. To figure out what really happened we need to look at both sides of the story. Great post!
