So, perspective is like having your own special way of looking at the world. It’s what makes you and your friends wonderfully different. Just like a big, colourful storybook, life is full of exciting pages, and everyone’s perspective adds a splash of magic to the adventure! Perspective can also help get us through trauma in our life. So it is like having a superpower for facing tough stuff in life. Imagine you’re on a wild adventure, and sometimes, the path gets rocky. Put on those magic glasses again and they can help you see things in a way that makes the tough times a bit more manageable. When you face something really hard, like a big challenge or a sad moment, using perspective is like having a secret weapon. It’s not about ignoring the tough stuff, but it’s about looking at it from different angles, almost like solving a puzzle. Let’s say you’re feeling really upset about something. Perspective is like having a friend in your mind who says, “Hey, I get that this stinks right now, but let’s think about it in a way that might make it a bit less heavy.” For adults, perspective might mean thinking bigger and more long-term. “I know I am devastated now about this, but will this really matter at all in 5 years?” So, why invest so much energy in this now, when in the grand scheme of things, this is only a tiny blip on the radar of life. Maybe it’s thinking about what you can learn from the tough times or realizing that even superheroes have their off days. It’s like being a detective in your own story, finding clues that help you understand and deal with the hard stuff. And here’s the cool part—using perspective doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. You can talk to your friends, family, instructor or even a grown-up you trust. They might have different perspectives that can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel. So, when life throws challenges your way, put on your magical perspective glasses. Look at the situation like a puzzle, and remember, you’re the hero of your story, equipped with the amazing power to tackle tough times with a bit more courage and understanding.
