Perspective is realizing that everything is not about you. It is easy to lash out because we feel hurt or threatened in some sort of way. What we need to remember is that there is another person in this situation. Remember that when you perceive the way they are acting towards you as negative, that their actions or words most likely has nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with that person. Sometimes people project their insecurities onto others. Take a step back and realize that the way you take something is exactly that, the way you take it. Perhaps it wasn’t intended for you to take it a certain way. It’s about perspective.
