Last week, I was telling the optometrist/vision therapist about how I switched eyes when I could see in single in the stereoscope.
“Don’t concentrate on the details of what you have trouble seeing well. Pay attention on what you can see. You can fuse in the periphery, but not in the center of your vision. Pay attention to the depth that you CAN see in the periphery and don’t bother yourself with what you can’t fuse. If you work from the area that you can fuse and works inwards to the area that you have trouble with, you will be more successful than thinking about how mcuh you can’t see.”
This made so much sense for me for my general life. As I am reconfiguring my life to match my new energy levels, I am rethinking what I can do professionally and socially. The answer is simple: stick with what works and don’t bother or lament what doesn’t. Life is simpler when we can do what we do best and let the other things will fall into place.
