Another concept regarding perceptions – I loved this graphic!
They say: There are two sides to every story – and then there is the truth. Some people are incapable of understanding this. They know their side of the story and are unable to see any other side. It’s kind of a great explanation of the split in our country – not that I plan on going political….
It just goes to show, we all have our perceptions but it takes someone really special to wrap their minds around both sides of the story – and an even better mind – to find a middle position and bring two sides together.
This is the kind of mind we all need. The ability to see both sides. The ability to accept two stories as being true yet formulating an instance where two separate things can be molded into one single truth. It may not be easy to do – especially for the analytical minds – but it is what is necessary for us all to “get along”.
