does conlanging change your sense of reality?

I'm personally of the Whorfian persuasion that different languages "cause"
different forms of thinking and different thoughts therefore arise.  Having
been so deeply engaged with Glide for 10 years, I've noticed I parse the
world differently--see process, for instance, more foregrounded than things,
flow more than form.  This is of course very subjective and not all that
easy to describe.  I am curious if anyone else sees effects in your
reality-sense that you attribute to your conlanging activities in any way?
