Daily Wisdom Word Meaning of Construct-Things subjective, such as friendship or religion built on subjective ideas or a group of thoughts conglomerated together forming one idea.
Friendship is a construct. The reason why the principals and ideas of friendship are construct, is because my ideas on what friendship should be based on, may be different then your ideas. I feel friendship is based on three principles: Love, respect and trust. Once one of these principles are broken, the construct or idea is broken.
Religion is also a construct. Religion is your eyes and what it means may be completely different than what my definition of religion means. Religion to myself is not God. God is different than religion. Religion supports theories of God, therefore making it a construct because these ideas are subjective to interpretation of how we individually understand what religion is.

History is subjective and open to the person’s beliefs and how they interpret it. History has so many thoughts and ideas behind it that many of them can be construed as meaning something else to another person hearing them. They are open to our own belief system.
