Understanding perspective is one of the main things I strive to sense.
I want to see from others point of view.
If you can’t see where someone’s coming from, how can you help them?
How will you know to approach the situation?
How will you know to help in a way that will be comfortable for them, but still let them grow?
One of my least favorite things is when someone gives me advice that doesn’t even correlate with my perspective. When they don’t take the time to listen and see where I’m coming from before speaking.
We are our environment, so how can you tell someone they’re emotions and opinions are wrong, just because you haven’t been accustomed to their way of thinking?
Even me, right now, will probably have someone disagree with what I’m saying, because it isn’t something they would think on their own.
But isn’t that beautiful? Isn’t it absolutely beautiful that we have a right to our own opinions, and no matter how hard someone tries, they can’t take it away?
Isn’t it so beautiful, that we are our own person, and don’t have to all be the same?
Even though I have my way of thinking, and you have yours, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t explain ourselves when someone is curious.
When we ask questions, when we are asked questions, we gain perspective.
And that’s the beauty of being human. We are our environment.
