The Paradox of Self-Perspective
No one outside of ourselves has the complete context that makes us who we are today, but our own perspective blinds us from seeing what everyone else experiences. So how do we grow? Beneficial growth doesn’t happen by accident. Our biases like to tell us that everything will be good enough. This is especially true about ourselves. How can we know anything if we don’t actively seek that information? Why should we seek information that is obviously incomplete? We should because the story we tell ourselves is incomplete as well and requires input to find the truth.
