Sometimes that’s all it takes.
You see something one way and it seems so clear and true, and then you read something, or someone says something, and everything shifts and suddenly you realize you have been getting it all wrong.
That thing that has been making you miserable may not be the way you thought. And if you’re wrong, your misery was misplaced.
It doesn’t mean that the new perspective is true either, of course.
It just means that you realize maybe you don’t know.
Maybe you’ll never know.
And maybe you just have to approach life with that outlook: “I just don’t know, so why get upset about the way I imagine it to be.”
