Am I Blinding Myself to Reality?

Lately, I’ve been trying to make sense of our toxic political climate. I’ve been wondering what is at the root of the constant misunderstandings in our political conversations. In the end, I realized I needed to ask myself a few simple questions and they apply to much more than just politics:

What preoccupations, stubborn expectations or ignorant assumptions are blinding me to the reality that is before me?

Am I ok with that?

It’s been humbling. It makes me sad to think that I’ve thought less of someone because of a reality that I constructed in my head; That I’ve missed out on something truly amazing because I’ve failed to let myself see the truth.
