I wrote an article recently, in which I shared that the world is not as black and white as it sometimes appears to us.
In other words, our perceptions, thoughts and even feelings are just that—the way in which we are perceiving our world.
I then offered up to you, the reader, that we try our hardest every single day to be more open in our communication—more kind, compassionate and understanding—even, and especially, with those that differ strongly from us.
Interestingly, the science video of the week on one of my favorite geeky YouTube channels is all about perception.
Can you trust your eyes?
