If we had someone else’s eyes for looking at us, we surely would find a lot of imperfections and deficiencies in us.
But such possibility is always excluded by the physical incapacity of looking with others’ eyes.
Besides, the physical position of eyes makes them to look forward and not backward to their possessor.
And we follow such position of eyes in the most part of our life, physically and spiritually. Comparing with the whole of life, there are a few moments when we look at us as if we would be an object to be thoroughly comprehended in our sight. Most of the time we hear words about us: ours or others’ worlds.
Thus, it seems that we are not naturally equipped for seeing our imperfections and deficiencies. Therefore, when others do this against us, their critical sight is felt as a physical harm.
