Our Perspective of an experience influences our emotions. Perspectives can be understood as judgments. Often, we judge unconsciously and become emotionally triggered. Following, we try to justify our charged emotions with a reason we make up as a truth. For instance, when someone is late to an appointment, we may begin to feel angry because our judgment is that the person doesn’t value our time.This process only serves to keep us in the negative emotion of anger. Another perspective for the person being late could be that he got stuck in traffic or he received an urgent business call which delayed his departure. Then again, does it matter the reason and is it worth the mental energy in trying to give it a reason? What if we decided that our judgment or perspective doesn’t have to have a meaning attached to it? It doesn’t have to be right or wrong. It doesn’t have to be good or bad. It is merely one of many different perspectives. By simply accepting that outlook, the emotional charge is neutralized and a state of peace is restored. I understand a lot of situations are heavily charged. However, if we can practice this simple technique with the minor circumstances in our lives, such as someone who is late for an appointment is simply someone who is late for an appointment, then we will better develop the skill to bring more peace to the complicated situations in our lives. The more we practice attaining a peace of mind of neutralizing an emotional charge and judgment, the better our health! The article below was written by Joe Martino on April 11, 2014.
