The other side

December 28, 2011

Humans are complicated creatures…. Ok, let me rephrase that: I don’t understand myself*. On the one hand I am very well equipped to understand the world around me, and specifically other people around me. On the other hand, I’m as biased as can be, and make all kinds of errors in judgement when looking at the world around me… I assume… You could say that I’m closer to being blind than I am to being clairvoyent. One of these phenomena that makes me so blind is that I tend to see things from my own perspective. I tend to empathise with the other’s situation, but interpret it from my own perspective.

*Booohooohooohooo!!!
