Try this on for size
No, this is not about your normal apparel sizes, but wait a minute, maybe it is. When we admire people in their nice outfits, cute cars, beautiful houses etc, do we think about the size of their debt? or just would like that similar lifestyle in our own size.
Thinking about the size might ruin our taste because that means seeing the complete picture of the person whose “stuff” we admire. So, more often than not, we would rather just keep our focus on the mundane thing rather than looking deeper to see the person. Seeing the person is like imagining what their life is really like and what they may be going through.
I'm learning not to judge a book by its cover, literally, because there is so much to discover when I start turning the pages.
The price of those fancy stuff is another thing to consider. Hey, when admiring someone, please try and factor in the total picture, it might not be pretty at all. Not all that glitters is gold.
My question to you is, “Do you look at the faces of those who wear sharp clothes or ride fancy cars and try to imagine what their life is really like?” Seriously, that might change your mind about a lot of things.
Set your own pace and run your own race.
