We See Things As We Are

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.” Anais Nin

It’s hard to find objective ground.

I struggle with this thought frequently.

My thought patterns, beliefs, interests, love and decision making skills differs from yours, hers, and his.

I see creative expression. You see garbage. I see catastrophe. You see political growth.

Remember, what you see may be entirely different than what your friend sees. The direct and personal reflection “as we are” is like a mirror, projecting and predicting. Understanding this might help us judge a little less, forgive a little easier and remember to listen more to those who aren’t, as you are.
