Your thoughts make up the reality that you live. Whether what you believe is true or not, if you believe it is true then to you it is true. Every decision you make will be decided by the truth as you see it.
Have you ever had the facts completely wrong and then realized that you made a bad decision? We all know that there is consequences for every decision we make. Unfortunately your actions can hurt others.
Before you react STOP and think about what your reaction would bring. Give each situation you face a chance to have a positive outcome for everyone involved. Once you react you can't take it back.
How you look at things will determine what you see. You know like whether you see the glass half empty or half full. Ten people could see the exact same thing yet they all see something different.
Your point of view is based on what you see. If you look at it from different points of view then you may change your point of view. If you don't then your narrow view will keep you from seeing what is right in front of you.
Like Elvis Presley said in one of his songs: You got to STOP LOOK AND LISTEN that's my philosophy.
