Living my life as an experiment has given me a valuable “to the side and slightly elevated” vantage point.
What does that mean? That while I am in the midst of whatever is going on, whatever is bothering me, I am also viewing it from a point not in the midst of.
Example: My landlord treats me like a dirty rag. That is a sentence from he midst of… From the side I can see that it is his self defense. He is a bad landlord who needs this property to suck the money out of so he and his family can live the way they want to live. I can understand his point of view. It doesn’t mesh well with mine, but such is life. But the dirty rag thing is the figment of my imagination.
