A view of life’s experiences

I was listening to a radio show this morning. I just caught a bit of it, so I’m not too sure who was speaking.

Anyway, a fellow was being interviewed. They were  talking about a major change in the his life and how people were responding to it. He noted that folks were all over the map in their opinions, but he wasn’t going to let that bother him.

He said: “My life experience is a bit like a Rorschach test, where people look at it and see what they want to see.”

I though to myself, boy, is that ever true. We can’t control what people think about us. They see what they want to see, based on their own experiences and beliefs. For some reason, I found that thought strangely relaxing.

Isn’t it interesting how we pick up these bits of conversation during the day, and they seem to be so meaningful at the time?

Tomorrow, that may have slipped right by.
