Field of View

If you've never done it before, wherever you are, stop and focus on one area without moving your head or your eyes around. You'll soon become acutely aware of every swaying blade of grass, every crawling ant,.. every movement, every change, in your field of view. I think the same is true of friends and family and anyone or anything close to us.

Everything normal about these people and relationships slips out of focus and every... single... flaw... in our friends and family members sticks out like a sore thumb, no matter how small or insignificant. This is natural, but it is also something to be cautious of.
Let's not take the best of these familiar people and places for granted so much that all we can see is the worst in them.
