Whose side are you on?

In the heat of the moment, it’s important to ask the question, Whose side are they on?

Of course, that seems easy to answer. They are on their own side.

What if though, for a moment, we would imagine that person is really on our side?

That they want us to succeed and to be better without any ulterior motives.

When we can see that someone is looking out for you, how would that change the conversation?
