Looking through different eyes
The question is posed to me:
𝒟𝑜 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓃𝓀 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝓁𝑜𝑜𝓀 𝒶𝓉 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝓌𝑜𝓇𝓁𝒹 𝓌𝒾𝓉𝒽 𝒹𝒾𝒻𝒻𝑒𝓇𝑒𝓃𝓉 𝑒𝓎𝑒𝓈 𝓃𝑜𝓌 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝓎𝑜𝓊’𝓇𝑒 𝓌𝒾𝓉𝒽 𝒶 𝓌𝑜𝓂𝒶𝓃?
The question is posed as we are watching another episode of Ellen/Elliot Pages 'Gaycation' I’m making ooh and aarh sounds and nodding my head as we watch.
The answer is ＹＥＳ, I definitely see things differently, however, it’s due to exposure. I’d say I’ve been wearing rose coloured glasses to outside issues prior. Or I’ve been far too self-absorbed. Ignorant to the outside of my bubble social issues.
Sure being in a relationship with a woman has opened my eyes to #discrimination, #inequality, #prejudice and sat me amongst a different célèbre of people. Socially intelligent, forward thinkers, those people discussing world issues and not just trying to win a #smallminded #bigfishinasmallpond #keepingupwiththeJones competition.
I now look at the world more holistically, from a far more open-minded perspective. I’m enjoying hearing and debating an alternative point of view.
Dissecting, examining, and pushing boundaries in conversation. It's said that your network is your net worth. And being in the company of those who can articulate the thought process behind a feeling and debate a topic with a 360 view is like sitting in a room full of visionary psychologists.
Learning the depth of someone’s philosophy opens doors to build depth to yours.
