PRETEND YOU AREN'T YOU BY ALEX GEE
I find creativity whenever I make the time to get to know someone new.
Sometimes it helps to pretend you aren’t you.
Our day to day lives can become so congested with our own thoughts and activity that it becomes impossible to remember the uniqueness of our own circumstances and aptitudes.
Allow yourself to let go of preconceptions and prejudgements and simply imagine.
It is remarkable how easy it is to get along with total strangers once you’ve developed a mutual understanding. Although it may force us to step outside of our own experience, this creative thinking makes way for the empathy that makes us human.
They say you have to walk a mile in someone’s shoes before you can pass judgement on them.
Well who has the time for that?
The truth is we all do.
