Perspective can change your opinions, but it can never alter the truth.
The truth remains steadfast and unwavering regardless of spin, manipulation, or culture.
A quick scan through your favorite social media feed will reveal just how divisive and diverse peoples views of the world really are. It’s always been fascinating to me that so many people can look at the same information and come up with so many different conclusions of what it means, or what truth is.
The strange thing about that, is there actually is only one truth, one reality, despite what so many believe there aren’t actually different versions of the truth, or something that’s true for me, but not true for you.
It’s just not how it works, but it’s very definition a truth is a truth, and it’s always true.
Most confuse perspective and truth.
My perspective allows me to “see” things from a certain point of view, which then allows me to form my beliefs about the world around me. My perspective is my own, but that perspective doesn’t always mean that my beliefs are actually true.
Too often we all find ourselves stuck in our own echo chambers of information, we use limited news sources that go unchecked for truth, and take their information as fact, when all to often it’s not. We listen to friends and family and give their opinions a weight of importance and credibility they do not deserve, and then we form our own thoughts on the world around us, and you know what. We are wrong a LOT of the time.
We have the right to be wrong, we have the right to be ignorant, and preach hate and cite garbage as credible, but is that how we really want to live our lives?
When was the last time you really spent the time to research, when was the last time you really spent the time to learn about someone else’s viewpoint, to try and see from their perspective?
Maybe it’s time? Maybe it’s something you should consider, and please do us all a favor and do it before posting or reposting the next ignorant garbage on social media, please.
