Tomato Tomahto

Day 114

As an experiment, I tried to approach everything I did today from a different perspective. I think we all make this subconscious, egocentric assumption that everyone else looks at things the same way as us, even though we obviously know that's not the case. Today I learned why we do that. It's exhausting to consider all the various opinions people might have about everything and act on them. We stick to what we know because it's practically painful to pull ourselves away from how we define the world. It was an exercise I'd encourage you to try though. I found myself much more patient, quiet, and surprisingly present.
