This image & the concept behind it perhaps has become a cliche to the reader but I could not find anything better in a short time to represent my point.
How often do we go through our lives without noticing the main thing that is causing a lot of miseries & starts the domino effect? We call ourselves names to justify that the reason for not noticing it is lack of understanding.
Sometimes it’s none of that at all. It’s something we carry all the time & it’s impossible to detect. Not because we are not smart. Not because we are careless. Not because we are just not good enough.
Sometimes a good friend can show us their vision of the world so we can compare but it seems we tend to befriend those with the same perspective so that chance rarely if ever occurs.
Question your assumptions. Don’t leave the easy or obvious ones.
