In art, perspective is showing the right (or wrong) relationship between visible objects. In communication, perspective reflects our attitudes toward things and an understanding of their relative importance. 

Either way, perspective provides us with a sense of proportion. And at all times, it helps to keep the relative proportion of any discussion, situation or event—or the comparative relationship of it to the entirety of our lives—in perspective.

Whatever is happening at any moment is merely a part, portion, bit, piece, percentage, fraction, segment or share of the entirety of our life—even when the moment seems like it is everything.

The perceptions we have regarding our lives and the world-at-large can change at any moment based on our perspective and whether we choose to see things positively, negatively or neutrally. 

It’s helpful to remember that the primary cause of our unhappiness is rarely another person or a situation, but rather our thoughts about it.    

As such, when moments requiring perspective arise, our goal needs to be to keep the event, comment or situation in proportional perspective: Not making it bigger or smaller. 

Our reality about our lives reflects our personal perspective.
