Last quote by Ethan Kross

Language provides us with this tool to gain distance from our own experiences when we're reflecting on our lives. And that's really why it's useful. In terms of why psychological distance helps, the example I like to give is to think about a time with a friend or loved one ruminating about a problem. As an outsider, it's relatively easy for you to advise them through that problem. One of the key reasons why we're so able to advise others on a problem is because we're not sucked into those problems. We can think more clearly because we have distance from the experience.feedback
