We all know how the famous saying goes; “If you want to understand a person, walk a mile in their shoes.”
It sounds corny and it’s pretty much stating the obvious, but it is an important truism.
If I want to understand an intellectual concept or a public issue I can study abstract theories, read articles and pore through books, but nothing is a substitute for experience. If you want to have a revelation, you have to live it and that’s what I inadvertently did when I became a “Twitter man”.
