Point of view
“Point of view” is used to emphasise that you are giving your own personal opinion about something. It can also be used to talk about a way of thinking. It is usually used with “from” followed by the subject whose opinion is being described.
For example: “From my point of view, I think we should go to the cinema today and the beach tomorrow” or “From an environmental point of view driving cars every day is very bad”.
