Our stories are all we really know
“Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice product castles in the air
And feather canyons all over the place
I have looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sunshine
They rain and snow on everybody
So quite a few matters I would have finished
But clouds obtained in my way
I’ve seemed at clouds from both equally sides now
From up and down, and even now somehow
It is cloud illusions I recall
I definitely never know clouds at all”

They can not be. Everything we experience is filtered by what we know. And what we know comes from the really human cultures we inhabit.
When a person rejects you for a occupation, they are not rejecting you. How could they be? They really do not know you. In its place, they are rejecting their story of you, the most effective approximation they experienced merged with the complex tale they (all of us) convey to ourselves about our wants, dreams and fears.
We acquire these stories and we compound them. We sharpen them, rehearse them and transform them into an augmented version of the globe as we see it, not the globe as it is.
If it is not functioning for us, the best detail we can do is commence to do the incredibly tough get the job done of telling a new story, a superior story, 1 that is additional practical.
The clouds are up to us.
