Setiap orang pasti melihat suatu hal dari sudut pandang yang berbeda, tapi rata-rata orang sudah bisa menjudge sesuatu berdasarkan apa yang dia lihat maupun dengar dari sudut pandang saat itu, tapi ia tidak pernah mencoba untuk mencari tahu dari sudut pandang yang lain.

Sudut pandang atau perspektif ini sangat penting dalam kehidupan kita sehari-hari, karena melalui berbagai macam sudut pandang itulah, kita bisa mengetahui tentang keadaan seseorang secara benar dan utuh.

Saya pernah mendapat sebuah broadcast messages seperti ini:

“15 years old girl holds hands with her 1 year old son. People call her a
“slut”, no one knows she was raped at age 14. People call another guy
“fat”, no one knows he has a serious disease causing him to be
overweight. People call an old man “ugly”, no one knows he experienced a
serious injury to his face while fighting for our country in the war.
Re-post this if you are against bullying and stereotyping. I bet 88 of you won’t,the other 22 arent heartless and will.”

Be a skeptical thinker !! Believe nothing you hear, 5% of what you read, and only 50% of what you see. Most of learning will involve trying things for yourself and see what works for you so don’t trust anything you hear or read unless there is published, peer-reviewed, university research which backs up the claims.

Cheers,
