NaBloPoMo Theme of the Day: Do you think it's possible to ever truly see the world from another person's perspective, or are we held so tightly to our own way of viewing the world?
I don’t think you can. Not totally at least. You can’t ever fully understand another person’s perspective. You can empathize; you can attempt to see your version of their perspective. But I don’t think you can ever truly line the two up.
But that is the game… isn’t it? The reason why people are drawn to one another? It’s to see how closely your cards match up with the other players, right? To find the similarities.
“You love Corn Nuts, too????? OMG!”
“You’re scared of other people's babies, too???? Afraid you may drop and kill them or that they will throw up all over you like a fire hose… at the beginning of a party …and you’ll be the lady in the really wet wool sweater that is now speckled with other people's semi-digested food. OMG!! Me too!”
