The Fault in our Stories:

I wonder if the story I've told myself matches the one you have crafted of me in your own head, based on your most minute experiences of me. I wonder if you wonder the same thing.

I wonder if we build entire universes based on our imaginations, convince ourselves these musings are real and just expect others to agree, to bend to our expectations with no protestation.

Then we become offended when they expect the same of us.

Humans are strange creatures, yet all highly capable storytellers.

Our biggest fault, it seems to me, is that we craft entire personas for others without ever managing to truly complexly imagine them.
