When we do comparisons it’s easy to forget that things are relative.
As an example, when I think of Germany I think of a world power. It’s easy to forget that Germany is also slightly smaller than Montana in size.
When I think of the formation of the United States, I think in terms of a long time ago. People in Rome, on the other hand, might consider that to be recent history compared to their history.
When communicating with others, it’s important to understand where they are coming from in terms of their perspective.
Have a great day!
