Rebbetzin Yehudis Samet has collected a thought provoking series of true stories showing how, no matter how clear the facts may seem, or how unforgivable, negative, or just plain nasty the behavior, we can never judge our fellow. Far too often, with all the facts, the behavior turns out to have been perfectly justified.
Her co-worker had taken the earrings that she lost in the office -- or had she? His brother hadn’t bothered to invite him to the family reunion -- or so it seemed. The plumber was a thief, the teacher was incompetent, the babysitter irresponsible. The judgment was clear. Until we heard The Other Side of the Story.
In addition to this collection of tales gathered from all over the world, The Other Side of the Story offers successful strategies on integrating the principles of judging favorably into our own lives, and a look at the profound wisdom that underlies this important concept. As we learn to give others the benefit of the doubt, to stretch our imagination and judge our fellows favorably, we will rise beyond anger to compassion, leave pettiness behind, and enjoy true personal growth.
