I think we’re all myopic in some ways. I like to think I’m open minded, but sometimes the narrow tunnel of my own experience can make the way I view the world somewhat distorted. It is recognizing this flaw in myself that helps me to forgive it in others. And in myself.
I try to consider varying opinions, facts and viewpoints. I try to listen with an open mind. I sometimes succeed. I can only come to my conclusions, and form my opinions based on these things mixed in with my own experience and perspective. And I hope that I always allow others to do the same.
No matter how closed-minded they may seem.
