We spend most of our lives looking at the world through our own eyes.
Unfortunately, what we believe about ourselves and the world isn’t the same as what other people really think.
If you don’t believe me, ask someone who you believe judges you because of your stuttering, what he/she thinks about you.
If this is too difficult, imagine popping out your own body and floating into that person’s body. Take on that person’s whole life, and own personal problems for a moment, and look back at yourself through their eyes.
Does the person still view you as you imagined him/her to?
