The Edible Quotient

There are two dishes in front of me: one contains loads of peas in it and the other has a lot of capsicum. The peas taste great but the capsicum seems uncooked. I inquire about it. I am told the extent to which capsicum, in general, is cooked so that it becomes edible is much less than what peas need. I realize though both are vegetables but they essentially have a different ‘edible’ quotient. Likewise, I feel we all have our own ‘edible’ quotient. Nature ‘cooks’ some of us more and some less only to connect us to the best we can be. Its a waste of time to look at others and be judgmental about oneself.
