Climbing into another person’s skin
Atticus is saying that we need to see other peoples lives through their perspectives. We need to not judge a book by it’s cover. If we find someone to be really mean we need to take a walk in their shoes. They could be having family problems or the might be getting abused by their parents and they don’t have any other way to take their anger out except for at school. When we realize what is going on in their life we can get to know them better than we ever have before. I try to understand what’s going on in other people’s lives, it actually is amazingly helpful to know why they are acting that way. I’m not the best at doing it to everyone but when I do I know how to interact with that person, and how to help others with how they are acting.
