Distance yourself from the emotional components of problems to gain a more objective perspective


  1. Imagine that you are a fly on the wall, simply observing the situation
    Think about what the situation would look like to an outsider.

  2. Visualize the problem in your mind, adopting a third-person perspective
    Try to make objective sense of your problem. Don’t allow yourself to adopt a first-person perspective where you get caught up in your emotions.

  3. Ask yourself, “How will I feel about this 10 years from now?”
    What about 15 years from now?

  4. Journal regularly
    Writing your negative experiences down will force you to create a narrative. This will help you gain a deeper understanding of your situation.
