“I don’t like that man. I should get to know him better.” – Abraham Lincoln
Perspective is everything.
In the abundance mindset, there is the belief all human beings are good. No one is born evil. The differences, between a terrorist and a police officer, are not malintentions. Both in their own mind, believe they are doing “the right thing”. The difference between the two are their interpretations, and understanding, of the world. Massive differences, but still at the root, perspectives.
A situation we can all relate to from some point in our lives, is poor first impression. An introduction to someone who… you’d rather not spend another second on. After the interaction, you want to distance yourself as far away as possible. Yet, life puts us right back next to them, not by choice, but by chance.
And we talk.
And we strike some common ground.
And we understand.
And things… change. We may not be close friends, but, that animosity we initially felt is no longer there. The brief amount of time we spent talking with them afforded us the chance to better understand their perspective. And why they came across that way.
Next time we find ourselves feel the wave of animosity towards someone, remind ourselves… we just need to get to know them a little bit better.
