Reciprocal insight: the asymmetry of awareness

We are all experts at seeing other people’s problems, yet children when seeing our own.
We need community for reciprocal insight.

No matter how gifted and aware you are, somebody else will see more clearly than you, and they will be pained watching you stumble about.
In reverse, when you see someone flounder, remember you are doing the same in another facet of your life.
