OK, so here are some things I've been thinking about lately: Things are not always what they seem. For example, marketers and artist rely on this to make you see things the way they want you to see them. You can meet someone and they can tell you everything you want to hear without any hint of truth. Anyone can give off any perception they want. The world we see is a reflection of who we are and what we believe.
The self-fulfilling prophecy lays at the foundation of this concept; a statement that alters actions and therefore becomes true. Someone who thinks their night is going to play out terribly will subconsciously change their actions so that this prediction is fulfilled by their actions. Often the way we perceive reality is colored by how we want it rather than simply the way it is.
Perception drives people's behaviors everyday. The key, I'm learning, is to not judge based on perception's or assumptions. But rather to love unconditionally, as difficult as it might be at times! Put aside personal agendas and be selfless in kindness towards others, vocabulary and service! Wishing you all a blessed and great night💫
