We do not see others as they are, but we subconsciously sculpt our internal images of others according to our own desire. The world has no form of its own. Rather, the form is recorded subjectively in our desire to enjoy. We are a kind of emotional camera that desires to enjoy, puts together an identity kit, and draws characters forth who could fulfill those desires. Naturally, we look at others in a possessive and utilitarian way. The behavior of others toward us influences the design of their image in our eyes. If someone “paints me in a negative light,” I can transform my perception of that person by appreciating their positive characteristics and loving them.
