Welcome to post three about Dead Poets Society, where we discuss life lessons that the movie teaches us! In the previous post we talked about conformity, and seizing the day. Today's post is going to be all about perspective! I have read some great posts over at Jumping Gene, a blog I follow, and I thought it fit in well with a life lesson in the movie as well. You check them out here and here.
Unless we are up in the air, or down under the sea, we’re always looking at things from one perspective. And even though there is so much to see, don’t you think it ever gets boring? In the movie the boys all take turns standing on a desk, and looking at the classroom with a different perspective than they have before. I did try this myself in my bedroom. And yes, you do notice things you never have before.
But there is such a thing as empathy as well, which I find to be something that goes hand in hand with this topic. We can see things from various others points of view, and that can be taking on a new perspective as well. Doing this is especially difficult if the person has an opinion on a topic or something you don’t quite agree with, or if they’re not someone you particularly like. But I dare you. I dare you to take on this challenge of seeing something from another’s perspective today.
