There are Two Sides to Every Story…and they’re both right. | Sharon Pope

You can only see what you believe, nothing else is possible.” Byron Katie

This week I had the experience of being able to speak with the husband of one of my long-term clients. He was open, honest, introspective and sincere. His wife is a good woman. He is a good man. And they’re at the crossroads of trying to figure out if they can be what each other needs or if it’s time to call it quits.

As they say, there are two sides to every story. That’s because all of us – everyone – can only see and experience the world through our own lens. Here’s what I mean:

Assume everyone is wearing a pair of eye glasses and embedded in those glasses is every past experience, every failure and every lesson, every belief, every judgement, every fear and insecurity, spoken and unspoken. Everything we see and experience gets interpreted (and distorted) through that lens.


Currently studying Psychotherapy , Cognitive psychology, Biological psychology, Counselling psychology and CBT. I believe in truth, honesty and integrity! ≧◔◡◔≦
