Gather the facts from all sides.
Ask more questions.
Use a variety of sources.

Our perception can shape our reality and leave us with a partial view of a person’s character or actions. We must collect past and current facts from all sides that can support a holistic viewpoint. Lucius Seneca once said, “We are more often frightened than hurt; and we suffer more from imagination than from reality.” Have your thoughts ever kept you from trying to rebuild a relationship with someone? Technology can help us to quickly gather facts and use many resources to support our findings. Use these steps to gather facts from all sides.
