It’s always good to remind ourselves to be malleable in how we face the world. To allow our views to change over time.
I was recently faced with recognizing my own bias. I had a conversation with someone who does not speak fluent English. I realized in my meeting with her that I was surprised by her intelligence. I initially took our difficulty communicating to be because she didn’t understand what was going on in a complex situation. In fact, it was clear in conversation that she understood well. It wasn’t a fact misunderstanding, it was simply the way we communicate our understanding – language.
