You see only what you want to see
One day a wealthy person took his son on a trip to the country side to let him see how poor country people lived. They stayed one full day and night in the house of a humble farmer. At the end of the trip father asked his son-
“What did you think of the trip? Did you notice how poor they are?”
The son replied-
“I learned we have one dog in our house and they have four. We have a fountain in our garden, but they have a stream that has no end. We have imported lamps in our garden, whereas they have stars! Our garden goes to the edge of our property, while they have the entire horizon as their backyard!”
He concluded- “ thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are”.
All depends on the lens that we use to see our life?
Have a lens that fits your eyes.
