When things are put into perspective, everything just changes. The scenery, the mood, and the whole story. People always wonder, why look at it that way? But do they ever answer that question? Not really. It is quite rare when someone can hear or see something from one point of view and think… “I wonder what it’s like if I looked from this direction or heard from someone else.” One’s judgment is quickly made because of the belief that everything they see or hear for the first time is the one and only correct time.
Many times I’ve caught myself closing my eyes or covering my ears to other possibilities. It was not until recently that I’ve truly discovered what it meant to look from another hole. Another eye. Another point of view. It was not until recently that I’ve truly discovered what it meant to hear from another hole. Another mouth. Another point of view. It sucks I’ve only recently discovered this wonderful realization. My eyes and ears are bigger than ever. (yeah wow Ceejay, I didn’t think your ears can get any bigger)
I just wish that there were more people that came to this realization. More people to give the benefit of the doubt. More people to look over both their left and right shoulder. More people to just… see. More people to just… listen. But what am I thinking. There’s no changing anything. I’ll just stay stuck on the other side of this wall. Hopefully others would be curious enough to peak over and give my side of the wall…
