What I’ve learnt today is that you end up perceiving things, events, people the way you subconsciously want to. And this subconscious “default setting” comes about from how you perceive yourself.
Do I make any sense?
Let’s just say that I thought a person was avoiding me because he/she did not like me (that’s my default setting: low self esteem) when in reality that person didn’t want to disturb me while I was studying. At least, that’s what the person said.
But whether this is true or not doesn’t matter.
What matters is the fact that I oh-so-quickly JUMPED to the conclusion that I had a bad personality or whatever.
My glasses are tinted with negativity.
Need an alkali to treat it with.
(I couldn’t help that joke pls forgive me oh chemists)
