A different perspective

10 Dec

So most of us are always worried about ourselves.  We sit in traffic and we are get frustrated at everyone in our way.  We wait in line at the grocery store or somewhere else, and we ask ourselves – Why are all these people in front of me?

We are very self-centered people and we are always looking at things in our own perspective.  How can it be easier on me?  What is in it for me?  How will that affect me?  The list can go on and on.  If we take things in a new perspective and stop focusing on ourselves, we automatically become more selfless and giving.  We have a better attitude on the way the world is and how the world treats us.  For example, instead of viewing the car who just cut you off in the middle of rush-hour traffic, impeding you to go home 5 seconds faster, maybe he has a sick child he is trying to pick up from school or daycare, with more reasons to move through the traffic faster than you.  

The world around us is about perspective, the less focused on the idea of self we are, the less frustrated and maddening we will become.
