Worth accepting

The very same event can be described by those involved in very different ways. The same person can describe the same event in different ways at different times.

Does this mean one version is the correct one and the others are wrong?

When we describe what is happening to us we almost never stick to the facts. We bring with us past experiences, values, emotions, sensations, expectations, and as time passes our memory filters out most of what does not align with our story.

And so it happens that often a version is correct for the person narrating it, and wrong for those listening.

Something worth accepting.
