Shifting Perspective - one of the tools in our toolkit

Have you ever thought about the role perspective plays in our ability to get along with others and enjoy life?  I have.  Give it some thought.  See if you agree with me.

Perspective stems from our experience - what we have to relate something to. While we cannot change our experiences, we can be open to look at things differently, and change our perspective. One way I shift my perspective is to ask myself questions about a given situation.... for example: "I wonder if there is another way I might see this?" or "I wonder if others see it this way?" or "How might she feel about this?" For me, conscious shifting of perspective is a great technique to help me gain a better, often more useful perspective.
