It is not love that should be depicted as blind, but self-love. – Voltaire
That one sure stings a little. Maybe hits a little too close to home. Maybe I’m the only one?
As I get older my selective blindness has become more and more clear. I’m not good enough to pick it out ahead of time, all the time, but I sure can tell that I’m not seeing the whole picture.
I convince myself that my ideas are good.
The stuff I want is necessary.
That my desires and wants are best for everybody.
That I have everyone’s best interests at heart.
That I’ll do better with the diet and exercise tomorrow.
That a few more minutes of TV won’t hurt.
What are you blind to? Who in your life might better see things as they are? Who might serve as an accountability partner?
Make it a great day.
PS – When you see me doing any of these things – please call me out!
