Blind-Spots.

If Self-awareness carries the assumption that we see ourselves clearly –

can it not also carry the assumption that we see ourselves dimly, with blind-spots?

Like looking into the reflection of a worn mirror.

Would not this realisation move us to feel compassion for others –

seeing them blinded by blind-spots?

…What if this new self-awareness led us to be humble?

Would not this kind of humility be truly humane?
