I see the ocean in front of me. A clear blue surface, white foam is crawling towards the beach. I see my feet sinking into the sand.
What I do not see is the long distance the water came to me. What I cannot see is its depth.
Whenever you describe a situation from your own perspective, be aware, that this is only one possible way out of many. You never know where another person comes from, you will not see the deepness of the spoken words.
