Your perspective matters!
Sometimes, we can get so stuck in our own way of thinking. You know, like when we're so bound and determined to be right that we make ourselves angry and frustrated, and we just want to shake someone else for not agreeing with us.
I'm sure you've been there. I know I have!
You know I love simplifying concepts with stories and analogies, so in this episode I use an example of a fence post to explain different perspectives. Many people can look at the same exact fence post but see it in countless different ways and from different angles depending on where they're looking at it from. You can choose to stay in your spot and see the fence post only from your specific viewpoint, or you can choose to take a step to the left or the right and see it from those different viewpoints, and on and on.
We have this freedom all the time. We can choose to see things from someone else's perspective. It doesn't mean that we necessarily have to agree with their perspective, but we can at least understand their view and where they are coming from.
Choosing to see things from someone else's perspective is FREEING! It helps us let go of our anger, frustration, and need to be right all the time. And it helps us to reduce conflict in our relationships. It's not always easy, trust me, but it is worth it.
I give some examples of this from my own life, and talk about how seeing things from my husband's and kids' perspectives benefits ALL of us.
It is ALL ABOUT PERSPECTIVE!
