“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ~ Aristotle
Create an antagonist who is the antithesis of who you are. Make them subscribe to another religion, hold different political beliefs, be the opposite gender, express different opinions, be from a different socioeconomic background and come from an opposite environment. Live and breathe with this character for a little while, “walk a mile in their shoes”, then infuse them into your daily life. How do you get along? How do they relate to others in your life? Are you able to accept them for who they are ? Are you able to empathize with them? Can you even see a little of yourself in them?
Reflect, write and most of all, have fun! 🙂
