Ever tried looking at an object using one eye? It always shifts when you open both eyes.
The same happens when you only think of yourself in a situation. How something will affect you, what everything means for you, what you get out of it…. The list goes on.
When the other eye opens, when the other’s perspective and reasoning is revealed, everything changes. It’s easier to forgive, easier to understand the why behind the what, easier to move on.
Looking past oneself makes one a better person, better partner, just better.
