Every perception is a real perception. That doesn’t mean that you have to take another’s as your own. You just have to live with, and be at peace with, the reality that two conflicting perceptions can exist at the same time.
You are your own host, you see yourself in more detail than others, and you have blind spots to yourself that others see easily.
That is why we often find that someone we consider beautiful doesn’t think they are at all. They don’t see themselves the way we do.
What do you see?
