10 Sep '18 — how can anyone tell you how something tastes?
My mom gave her friends a sample of her homemade kombucha. Some thought it was incredibly sour, some thought it was super sweet. She noticed how people have different flavor palettes.
I’ve been thinking how I get so affected by certain situations for no reason. I can’t rationalize why I get so upset or uncomfortable at times but it’s clear there are social situations I’m more sensitive to than others. I’m sure others are sensitive to situations I don’t feel don’t notice, feel anything for.
It’s not about empathy in cutting others slack for their inability to handle a situation. It’s more that I’m starting to understand that people have different tolerance for different situations because they’ve been exposed to different things. Everyone’s taste palettes are different.
