Often, we allow ourselves to be seem through the eyes of another. But do we understand what we are allowing? We may be relenting to a mindset and viewpoint that doesn’t belong to another. Why? Because we can take on the persona of what others think of us and mimic a personality that doesn’t fit our life. However, everyone is entitled to their opinion. And we just might learn something from their perspective of us.
Perspective defined is: Your point of view; how you see the world and determine how you view things in it, including self and others.
Can we allow the viewpoint of another to at least instigate a thought on what is seen and understood or even misunderstood about us? It takes guts to be in such a vulnerable position. But it takes bravery to utilize it as a positive benefit on our behalf. It’s alright to let perspective work for us.
