It's all about perspective. At 13, I was quickly growing up and my body was changing. I couldn't escape the realization that I was on my way to becoming an adult. I think that new reality went to my head. And I think that's something common to most teenagers. Now, as an adult in the real world, I see other people around me who know things I don't, who have skills I can only dream of. And watching the news, I see stories about horrors I can scarcely understand.
Seeing this picture on Facebook brought these thoughts to mind.

Having children, I can appreciate the truth of this. I remember being a child and thinking everything every fight, every accomplishment was a life-altering affair. Seeing this made me smile. While differences in perspective can be a potential source of conflict, they can also add to the richness of life.
