Hate the sin, not the sinner

One of my favorite NLP presuppositions insists that we look at only the actions of the person and not the person committing them.


Here is a quote:



PEOPLE are not their behaviors:  separate the intention or purpose behind an action from the action itself.  So accept the person and change the behavior.



Sometimes, people will act in a negative way due to personal or internal pressure we can't see.  And, by judging or criticizing the person acting in that way, we are heaping dirt on them, when they might already be in over their head. 


In what ways does this presupposition help you to understand others around you?
