The bigger picture


I know that a forest is made up of individual trees, but when I look at a forest, all I see is a forest. And that’s pretty much the same when it comes to my outlook in life. I just look at the bigger picture and summarize everything I see with pure feeling and intuition. Because I learned that when I try to make sense with tiny details of information—it kills me. And it’s really a challenge for me to live in a world filled with so much logic and explanation that it kills my own morals and perspectives in life—which gives life for me less meaning and beauty whenever I am faced with its harsh realities. Because sometimes I forget that bad things happen in this world whenever I think of it as a place filled with love and beauty.

  1. This is so interesting to me, Juansen. I, too, try to get a “big picture” perspective because it helps me get a general sense but details are where I feel like I thrive emotionally and mentally. And I feel an attachment and love to the nitty-gritty of the details. They inform my perspective even more then. I really find it fascinating that you say you “lose” something when you dally in the details while I feel like I “gain” more even in harsh realities. A mind is an interesting place. I do appreciate you sharing your thoughts and perspective on this topic.
