How many times has it happened that you looked at the past and went,
“What was I thinking?”
“That was so obvious. How did I miss it?”
“I can’t believe I didn’t see that”
You did see it.
You saw it loud and clear
But at that point, what you saw conflicted with your world view
What you saw conflicted with your desires at that point
So what may seem like a capability issue
Is really not
You simply didn’t want to notice
The lack of willingness to notice the opposite perspective is more harmful than the capability to do so.
