They are not you and you are not them.
They don’t know what you know.
You don’t see what they see.
We all have a unique filter calibrated to just us, and us alone.
It interprets and guides our thoughts, values, opinions and behaviours.
And it’s not necessary, or even possible, to re-calibrate to be completely in sync with others.
All we need to know is – it’s there.
And do the hard emotional labour of seeking to understand, see and hear others.
Not to change each other. Simply to collaborate and be open to possibilities.
And simple is rarely easy. That’s what makes it worthwhile.
