Everyone has a different perspective because we all have different life experiences.
Our life lessons are not all precisely the same. The lessons we are taught, the joy and pain we experience, are never identical to another. We each feel and see things from our own perspective.
We are unique, and we learn what we need to learn in the moment. Not every lesson is meant for us either. Sometimes we are a catalyst for another person, and it is our experience and knowledge that benefits another.
Our perspective allows us to share differing views with the world and them with us. The key is knowing when someone’s viewpoint is helpful or harmful. Not everything we are told is truthful or useful for us, especially nowadays on social media where videos use trickery to deceive in the hopes that you will buy into what is being said or sold.
It is when our learnings are limited because of age, our experience or our lifestyle that we can take advantage of the opportunity of another’s perspective. If, however, that viewpoint is slathered with hatred, racism, or negativity, we must recognize that it is not for us. We are meant to love and be helpful, not to hate or be hurtful.
Take some time and watch as other people interact. What views of theirs are similar? Which ones are different? Then ask yourself if the differing views are because they have more knowledge that you can benefit from or because they don’t align with your values and morals.
Your opinions and beliefs will change and deepen as you get older. The more experience you have, the more varying your viewpoint of things can be. Your experience is like a guidance system that points the way forward or warns you to change course. It also lets you know when you are missing something and need to reach out to another to learn and keep growing.
Learn what you can, when you can, recognize when it is not a good thing and that all paths and opinions are not meant for us. Sometimes we argue because our viewpoints are so different. If you can, remember in these times that everyone’s experience is different, then perhaps you can listen instead of arguing. You can discuss and share viewpoints calmly.
As you walk through life, never forget that everyone has a different perspective.
