This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 6/26/2016:
Spent some gloriously lazy time this weekend watching the newest season of Orange Is The New Black, and I think my favorite thing about the show is the way every episode reveals a backstory of a different character. You see them all interacting in this imprisoned state, after they’ve made a bad decision or gone down the wrong path, and you ASSUME things about them — this character’s cold-hearted, this one is crazy, this one is weak…
But then you get a glimpse of the pivotal moments in their lives that made them who they are. Maybe it was how they were raised, or a hardship they had to endure, or ways that they learned to protect themselves, but you begin to get a much more textured and nuanced understanding of who they are and what motivates them.
Watching it today reminded me that EVERYONE has their story, the pivotal moments that contributed to the unique way they view the world. We have a tendency to think that everyone else walking around should see things from OUR perspective, and that can lead to a lack of empathy and understanding for our fellow humans. But when we acknowledge that others have a personal history, and, even better, when we ASK and dig deeper to uncover that personal history, that’s when we have a real capability of connecting with people and seeing the world through their eyes.
