Solomon's Paradox

Solomon's Paradox suggests that we reason about other people's social problems in a better way as our outlook has a certain distance.

This paradox is evident when we cannot see our own problems with the same clarity and objectivity.

Our emotions take precedence in our own problems due to our narrow viewpoint.

  • If we imagine that instead of us, it's someone else whom we are advising, we may have a more objective suggestion.
  • Talking to yourself in the third person also puts us in a witnessing ...

Accepting the wisdom that comes from being objective is critical, though it may mean coming in terms with yourself.

Distancing yourself from the situation gives you clarity, but the bitter truth that emerges should not be disregarded.

The self-advise that is now accepted, has to be acted upon.

Action is crucial after you objectively understand and accept the problem.
