“The issue is not about how the world is, but about how you are.” The Courage to Be Disliked
We all see the world through our own lenses. We can witness the same event and not take the same thing from it. Ultimately, we must realize that how we see the world has a lot to do with who we are. Our worldview, how resilient we are, from where we source our hope, our values and what we believe the world should be.
We cannot control that which is outside of us, so then, we must see how we see the world and figure out what that says about who we are.
Are we in fear? Do we feel inferior and therefore try to pick apart the flaws that stick out? Are we in joy? Do we rely on external validation or are we complete? Do we believe people can change or that they deserve the opportunity?
What we must remember is that it’s about who we are. This informs what we see and how we see it.
