If we were to think about the bigger picture and relate that bigger picture to everyone’s life and circumstances, where they are in their lives and why they think and behave in a certain way, we would certainly learn to be less critical and judgmental of them and their behaviour.
We would get to see the bigger picture, when we look at what they’re dealing with. Unfortunately though, we tend to judge people and their circumstances, when we don’t completely understand and all we see is their behaviour. Looking at the bigger picture helps us look beyond what we see.
It will also enable us to make more informed choices on whether we choose to deal with, put up with, or walk away from those relationships. I believe that seeing the bigger picture of what someone deals with is a good way to help us achieve this.
