PERSPECTIVE CRITICISM – The Power of Point of View
For the next seven days, try walking a mile in another person’s shoes. See life from a different perspective than your own. When you get to know where a person is coming from and what they have gone through, the more you understand why they think, speak, and act in certain ways. This new understanding grants you the ability to respond with much more compassion and empathy, instead of anger or frustration. When you practice the power of perspective, you WILL eradicate all conflict from your life, once and for all!
This can be quite frustrating, especially when we’re trying to communicate how we feel, what we see, or what we’re experiencing. But, if we’re able to understand the power of perspective, we can ﬁnd ways to get around this frustration.
