Please explain the following lines from "If" by Rudyard Kipling. if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you but make allowances for their...


In the poem 'If' by Rudyard Kipling, the poet is not only advising his son but sending out the message to other readers too, including us. He is advising us to have 'the courage of our convictions' in many situations. However, first we must know we are right, or have a strong suspicion. Kipling is saying that we should not dismiss the doubts of others out of hand, but consider them well in making our final decision. Once we are sure we have done enough research and taken enough advice and opininions and still feel the same about our decision - then we should be courageous and trust our instincts. We should 'make allowances' by not punishing those who are 'wrong' in our opinion, for doing so might render them less likely to proffer an opinion next time.
