Digging Deeper Question

4. Elaborate on the quote from Anais Nin: “We see things not as they are but as we are.” 

This quote “We see things not as they are but as we are” means that we see the world as we expect to see it. We walk into a classroom hearing that the teacher is mean and we except them to be mean so that’s the emotions we focus on. If we wake up in a bad mood, every slightest bad thing that occurs that day seems to make of us in an even worse mood. People have different meanings of what things are. Everyone has their own view of the world and they see it in their own perspective.
