Stick with what’s true about you

One time, a friend shared a picture on social media. It was a silhouette of something. It was a flower, or an insect. Or maybe a dragon? I couldn’t tell, but that was the idea—it was hard to figure out until you knew the “trick.”

I finally gave up and searched through the comments others had posted underneath the picture, hoping for a hint. What I found was this: “Look at the light part, and you’ll see it right away.” Ignoring the silhouette this time, I looked instead at the surrounding, seemingly blank area, and immediately a person’s face emerged. As another comment said, “Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.” I found that to be very true.
