The World seems complicated because we tend to make it so.
We assume from the get-go that this is an objective world. An idealistic view where every person is pragmatic and that everyone appreciates good values.
Problems vanish into thin air if we expand our understanding. It’s also true that every person on this planet is correct in their own world view. That’s nothing but being subjective to their environments, they are correct in their viewpoints.
This leaves us thinking what’s right and what’s wrong and who is going to decide that?
The world you see is different from the one your colleagues see. Their perceptions will differ and are subject to the experiences they have gone through in their life, in their upbringing.
Next time, whenever you find yourself caught in a situation where your action is based on the best of motives but it is being perceived differently, remember that life’s inevitable clause of ‘Subjective and Objective Perception’ is at play. The best thing to do at that point is to give yourself some time trusting that the time will someday bring the best motives to light. Of course, you can try explaining your viewpoint, but the more you push, the more the opposite viewpoint wins.
Cheers, and good luck!
