Reframing is altering your perception suitably so that reality takes on a different meaning. There is always a glass you wear, there is no such thing as a transparent glass and you can change the color of the glass.

There are two kinds of reframing: Content Reframing and Context Reframing.

We can take a negative experience and reframe it to a positive experience. We can take a good experience and reframe it to a great experience.

In most real life situations, there is no inherent meaning. The assumptions that we make about the situation, gives us the meaning. By altering these assumptions (either in the content or in the context), we can change what an experience means to us.

What is important is not how the majority of people would interpret an experience. What is important is, what would be an empowering and useful way to interpret an experience. This is the core of reframing.
