It's all about perception.
I've been thinking about that. We seem to live our lives based on our perception of what we see, hear and experience. We can choose to interpret our experiences in any way we want to - we have the freedom to select any meaning for any experience instead of being a victim who must assign one and only one meaning to each experience.
