When something big and scary happens, we can often fixate on that monster. I can’t believe this happened? Why did this happen? I wish it didn’t happen. It can be helpful in these moments to change our perspective. This doesn’t mean that we deny our experiences. On the contrary, we own them. And, it doesn’t mean that we appreciate that terrible thing that happened either. Rather, when we gain perspective, we’re afforded the opportunity to better grow and heal because we see our experiences in a new found light. In this episode, we’ll talk about what this “shift in perspective” is (and what it’s not). We’ll give some everyday examples and then apply this same strategy to larger, life-altering monsters like cancer.
