initially, the way we look at the world is constructed on our behalf based upon where we live and how people act around us. these forces steadily work together, concretizing into a single frame called “the norm.”
many of us can’t objectively identify each piece of our norm until a life experience occurs, leading our eye away from our surface reality and towards our inner realm.
our inner realm is where the truth lives. where we sort out the past against the present. where we make sense of how we feel and what we think for ourselves.
but, the problem with this place is that no one has taught us how to navigate modern day reality all the while honestly engaging with who we really are.
