The Way We See the World is Flawed
…but that’s okay.
The sun rises. The sun sets. The tide goes in. The tide goes out.
While all these sentences seem like no-brainers, they are completely biased and subjective.
It’s all about perspective.
And we are stuck with language from our own perspective.
The sun never sets. It just falls beyond our horizon as the Earth rotates. Even the word “falls” is limited by our perspective.
So, if our perspective shapes our language, imagine the things in life that are almost always viewed from one perspective.
Think of relationships, parenting, careers, beliefs, disagreements, and even wars.
The easiest change of perspective is probably when we look back in hindsight at our past.
Take a moment to think: How many things can change if we only change our perspective?
It’s time we explore different viewpoints before we make our decisions.
