Life experiences are different for everyone which makes our perspectives different. We can learn what another person is going through, what they are feeling, or what they need by listening to their point of view. Sometimes we avoid looking at things from other perspectives in fear that we may lose our own. The truth is that we can articulate someone else’s perspective and gain understanding without accepting their point of view. Our goal should be to communicate a message of respect based on the satisfaction of the other person feeling understood. Opening our minds to the ideas of others and looking at things through someone else’s lenses allows us to learn something new and grow. We may even see something great in ourselves if we would simply take off our blinders and LOOK THROUGH.
