One Version of Reality

Two people observe the exact same interaction and come away to then describe that event quite differently from one another. How can this be?

In observation, most will add their inferences and intentions of what occurred to shape their version of an event. Essentially, we add to the reality to see what “fits” for us from our experiences and often to protect our egos.

Be cautious to observe only what transpires and define just that as the basis of reality. Don’t insert your own temperament and judgement, these only serve to form widely variant assessments made and false directions to be set.

From the real assessment, you will be open to learn and then act to make better decisions rather than have confirmed a bias within your current comfort zone.

To continue learning, determine your way from stark reality and not an entangled version of it.

“To understand the actual world as it is, not as we should wish it to be, is the beginning of wisdom.” — Bertrand Russell —
