Isnt it all about perception?
This statement has its lighter side and its darker side, but it’s a functional statement, not a philosophical one. Perception is reality is usually just a clumsy but short way of saying that people do not react to reality, they react to their perception of it. Therefore if you control how they perceive reality, which is easier than controlling reality, you control how they will react.
Think about the circumstances you’re in living right now. Did you consciously decide to create the reality you’re living now, or was it mainly shaped by your parents, in-laws, spouse, school, or the media? Wouldn’t you want to stop the flow of money from your house to someone else back home? Wouldn’t you want to be in better control of your situation? Feeling frustrated that its not working out? It’s all about perception and perception is after all reality.
Things might be falling apart in your household, but if you had a supportive partner, who “felt” the same way you did, it would have been much easier to tackle any given situation. But in my case, the household is always divided. If I feel a certain way, rest assured my better half will not only be feeling the other way, but will also be questioning how I could be feeling the way I do.
Its happened way too often with me and that’s why I’ve decided to do something about it. After all, don’t we all get caught up in our own stories? I still don’t know what I need to do to change my circumstances but I do know everything begins with a decision – deciding now to be in charge of my own perception of reality.
