My Dear Son:

Difference of personal perspective goes back to the Golden Rule again. Alas, your own perspective on how someone else would like to be treated may not match yours. There are general guidelines or value points that hold true for most people: most of us don't like feeling lonely, vulnerable, or abandoned, for instance, but differences in perspective will often determine what events or circumstances make us feel such ways.

If you find yourself in an unexpected situation that frightens, saddens, or embarrasses you, you have just been blindsided. But the difference between being completely prepared for the situation versus finding yourself in a surprise can involve a few simple steps.

Chances are the circumstance may still lend itself to discomfort, but being clued into yourself in such a way that you accept it as it comes can make all the difference in the world. More later!
