Marvil, Gean Venus L.BSAT-III; Philo102-AMay 26, 2018“Change how you see and see how you change”(Zen Proverb)The way individuals respond to change is largely determined by their perspective, of how they see and understand things as well as their underlining social constructions.  Our points of view in life are commonly fixed based on what we look at, what we believe in, and what we ordinarily know. If the way I view things around me is the only thing I believe it to be, without trying to look at another angle of the view, then my perspective will never change no matter what other people might talk me into. I generally imagined that change happened when you moved to somewhere else or when you lost somebody genuine near you. Those are a test to change, indeed, yet change doesn't need to happen over a climactic occurrence. It can simply be by being in the place of the other person’s shoes. Experiencing their point of view and day to day struggles like what I had during the exchange. The quote “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view—until you climb into his skin and walk around it” a line said by Atticus Finch from the famous book To Kill A Mockingbird written by Harper Lee, corroborates how narrow minded I can be if I am so fixated with my point of view only, without even trying to understand others. I for one, have had judgements, criticisms, and opinions limited to what I look at and what I think. Yet, after experiencing the Exchange Program, I have come to the awareness that change can be the deepest of all things.
