You exist in 2 different worlds. But you don’t think about it as often as possible.
The first world is inside your head. It’s what you imagine about yourself. It’s how you perceive things happening around you. It’s your own perfect world.
In that world, you are the center. You are the main character. You want everything (if not, most things) to happen your way. Your ideals and ideas matter more than anything else and you want them to become a reality.
At all costs, you’ll do everything to protect that world and make it a happy place all the time. You only want what’s best for you. That’s all that matters.
However, there’s another world you’re not aware of — it’s what’s happening inside another person’s head.
In this other world, you exist differently.
For your true friends, you exist as a flawed human being who makes mistakes. You’re not the main character in their worlds. But your role still matters. Because they understand you for who you are.
On the other hand, you’re the antagonist in the worlds of people who hate you. And there’s nothing you can do about it.
This is a good reminder every time you’re disappointed or offended by others. You’re not always the good guy. You could be the enemy in another world.
There’s no point taking things personally.
You should also understand that each world has differences.
In your world, it may be easy. You have the advantage. But for others, it’s not.
You can say something to someone struggling in life that they’ll be okay soon. But they won’t be able to understand it.
This is where most people get confused. Often, we’re just saying something because we know that we can easily deal with it in our own worlds.
We forget that it’s different from others.
