Not everyone is like you.

I need to stop viewing the world based on what I think is right, based on how I was raised.

Because the world is so much more than that with many points of view and perspectives that no one man can understand it all.

Through our narrow perspective of the world, many issues become clouded. Issues that are sometimes very important to others. Instead, we prioritise only what is important to us.

Empathy, we need empathy to bridge that gap. To become more understanding and share what others feel. Also, I think it is crucial that we have some self-awareness. To be self-aware that not everyone is like us, raised like us, lived like us, learned like us. We’re all different with sometimes widely differing viewpoints.

I guess once we understand that the world might have less conflicts and it would definitely be a better place.
