Perception is a very tricky thing. The appearance of a thing is not always what that thing is truly about. There could be more to the story. Everyone has to overcome perceptions about ourselves that can lead to misunderstandings or worse. Just because it looks weird doesn’t mean it always is weird.
Maybe asking questions and not jumping to conclusions can help one understand what is going on in any situation. Everything about us is judged and that is unfair but it’s a reality. You have to watch your p’s and q’s as they say so that people won’t think bad things about you or anything you might be doing. It’s a bad thing that perception and judging are close cousins if not siblings.
One thought on “Another Ramble About Perception”
I have dealt with that problem personally. Because I used to do a lot of band photography, and were always with bands taking pics, or at their shows, people thought I was some wild woman, a groupie, drinking and druggin and all that comes a long with being a groupie. When actually I rarely even had a alcoholic beverage while “working” doing the pics. I never slept with any members of the band, and we sure never sat around doing drugs!!!!!
So people really shouldn’t jump to conclusions, just because you think you know what is going on, most of the time really isn’t what is going on!
