Our perspectives are individually unique. No other person has shared the exact experiences in life. A few things that can influence our perspectives are our:
- Religious faith (if any)
- Inherited traits
- Natural temperament
- Life experiences
A simple narrative clearly demonstrates how our perspectives can be different. Let’s assume that you and a small child are walking through a meadow of wild flowers. However, among the flowers are dandelions. The child see the dandelions with their beautiful yellow blooms as just another type of wild flower. You, because you struggle to keep your garden free of them, see the dandelions as an unwanted weed.
Both of you are seeing the same dandelions. The child sees something beautiful. You see an ugly weed. Your perspectives are quite different because your reference points are different.
That is exactly why your perspectives on life might be different from mine. That doesn’t mean that either one of us is wrong. Our experiences have just led us to viewing things differently. Diversity of perspectives should not only be tolerated, it needs to be encouraged!
I am a Humanist and a Highly Sensitive Introvert. Both of these characteristics influence my perspectives. When my perspective differs from yours, please feel free to use the comment section provided in each post to share your thoughts and experiences.
