Let Travel Change You

In the western world, we call each other hypocritical. We post a story on Facebook of earthquakes in Italy, but not Myanmar. Shock shutters through us when we hear of bombings a world away in Paris, but not Baghdad. Why?

I humbly submit, it’s not hypocritical, it’s cognitive bias.

This post explains why, I believe, our subjective social reality influences our social media posts. Should we give ourselves a break because we have an excuse? No. What we should do, is travel.

One woman’s opinion, what’s yours?
