I wish that everyone considered this. It is perception that drives our own reality and so often people assume to know more than they do. The only way to know what someone feels, thinks or means is to ask. This is how I choose to live my life, and even though sometimes asking is a hard thing to do, at least I can feel proud and confident about perceptions of others.
Sophrosyne | Sophrosyne (Greek: σωφροσύνη) is a Greek philosophical term etymologically meaning healthy-mindedness and from there self-control or moderation guided by knowledge and balance. Roman poet Juvenal later interpreted sophrosyne 'mens sana in corpore sano' ("a healthy mind in a healthy body"). —Wikipedia
