I found this image on Pinterest. Ironically, it’s speaking about an idea that I was just dealing with two days ago.
The way we understand this world develops through experience. A person, who’s lived through a tornado, perceives life a bit oppositely, than someone who’s lived contently on Wall Street.
Our expectations then, should be “open” enough to understand beyond our own experience. No two lives have walked the same exact path.
A firework could trigger PTSD for a Veteran. Rustling wind through neighborhood bushes , at night.. migh easily spook a Sexual Assult Victim.
We’re entitled to our thoughts, feelings, and opinions. We live our story. We hold our versions of every possible situation…
So does everyone else.
If we’re going to live amongst one another, we should be mindful to be objective in conversations which it’s necessary.
Have a great day!
