Softening Perspectives

“Everyone is doing the best they can with what they know at that time”.

This helps me to come to a point of understanding and compassion.

When I encounter people acting in a way that surprises me, I strive to ponder the above to bring me back to a place of acceptance.

This doesn’t mean I excuse any negative actions or behaviour.

Instead I ask questions such as how can I help that person with new information, share an outlook, share a different way. How can I listen?

This softens my perspective, aids my understanding and makes for a less stressful moment.

I hope this can help you too.

This is an ongoing experiment with much daily practice.

Do you have a practice like this?
