“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth” – Marcus Aurelius
We’ve all had those moments where we “hear what we want to hear”. It brings light to how powerful our perceptions can be. And a humble reminder that it’s not so easy to truly be open-minded. We will have opinions and biases, as human beings. But the only time these opinions and biases do us wrong, is when we believe they are facts.
Are there things we do throughout our day, just because we have in the past?
Or because someone else has shown/told us to do so?
If we “accept”, for example, our habits, we become blind to potential improvements.
Is there something we can change for the better in our lives? If there is no right or wrong, and everything is opinion and perspective, where can we put some more thought, potentially leading to a better way?
