Ryan’s Phrase Of The Day: Shoe’s on the other foot

Meaning: Roles reversed, to experience someone else’s situation

Example (1): “We as human beings are often quick to judge others without really knowing the full situation, if the shoe was on the other foot maybe we would feel differently.”

Example (2): “When we are young our parents always push us to finish our homework, sleep early, eat well and so on. We would then complain until we grow older then the shoe will be on the other foot as we tell our children to do the exact same things.”

See ya!

    曾经有一个真挚的感情摆在面前我没有珍惜,直到失去以后才追悔莫及......忽然想到这句台词,不知是否可以代入到这个道理?

    Is it the same meaning with "put oneself in someone's shoes"?
