I have given this a great deal of thought lately. We all live in our own reality. We have to realize that
I am the most important person in the world.
I’m not wrong. This is what I perceive to be true. For me, this is truth.
You see, everyone can see the same thing, but you never see it exactly the same. I can look at something, and the person standing next to me can see it too. But their eyes are next to mine, and there is no possible way they can see it exactly the way that I do.
So, to tell someone “oh come on, don’t think that way!” or “seriously, that is not what just happened!” can be considered as showing a lack of respect for them. If the person is kidding around, that’s one thing. But if they seriously have seen or taken part in something and interpreted it as thus, then we need to show respect and consider it. This is who they are.
All of us are living inside of our own reality show. It’s almost like a virtual reality. I imagine putting on those virtual reality goggles and we go off into our dreamlike state. We have an entire universe inside of us. The world does center around you! (I thought that was a crazy idea when I first heard that. I thought, “What?! That is so self centered!” Then I thought about it. While the world spins, we each have our own opinions, our own value system.
