I am learning there are as many sides to a story as there are people involved.
My daughter is studying the American Revolution, and a few of her assignments have been to read various accounts of events that unfold.
It's kind of amazing to me how two people can perceive the same event in entirely different ways.
I mentioned in a previous post that I'm dealing with a family issue (we're all dealing with those, I'm sure). Of course, I have an opinion. However, because it doesn't directly involve me, I'm choosing to stay as neutral as possible. As "Switzerland," I get many sides to the same story.
This has been eye-opening for me as a writer. Because I got it--I just didn't get it (if that makes any sense at all).
No two people can ever tell the same story.
Something worth thinking about. :)
