Sitting in a hip restaurant in the posh part of town invariably includes a noisy environment. I personally don’t get it, but it is clear people like to see and be seen in loud places. Never mind you have to yell at each other to communicate, it is the atmosphere that is considered hot!
Sitting in a movie however, you want total silence and even if someone near you whispers something about the plot to their companion you might get really pissed. In a restaurant it is perceived as ok – even great – to have to yell across the table. In a movie theater you would be quickly escorted out.
Let’s say we reverse the scenarios and we make it ok in the general culture and accepted norms to whisper in a restaurant and scream in a movie theater. You would react totally different to someone talking loud in a restaurant and not mind it in the theater.
What gives? It is all about judgment, isn’t it? How you judge the moment or circumstances.
I thought I would bring awareness to the issue. Perhaps you can question how and that you are judging. Becoming conscious of how and that we are judging opens the door to looking at life differently. For me, when I can look at things from a different perspective it helps me to change with ease.
