When I find myself judging. Looking through the lens of “right” and “wrong”. I remind myself that we all have our truths that we deem to be facts. Our own unique life experiences and values shape the way we see the world. That is why I feel it’s invaluable to try on new perspectives or at the very least try to understand them. When I switch the judging/anger to curiosity/understanding this allows for empathy and acknowledgement. I believe that getting angry and making people wrong only pushes us all deeper, blindly into our own perspective/truth. In my mind life is not just black and white. It is far more complex than we wish to know. Right and wrong feel like a simple solution to the majority of “problems” we see in the world. I invite you to consider the complications that add to everyday life. Try on others perspectives to see how that feels. Maybe see how it feels to get in touch with your truth and the truth of those around you.
“There are no facts, only interpretations” -Friedrich Nietzsche
