People don’t see the world as it is.
They see the world as they are.
Speaking for myself, even though I do my best to ‘step outside’ myself, and be ‘the observer’, it’s not really possible to separate from your own ego & worldview for very long.
We can try, we can pause, we can practice.
But also, we can accept that others probably aren’t out to hurt us …
… they’re just protecting themselves.
