Understanding our perceptions

When we come to understand our perceptions and how those work, we can change and our lives can change. Perceptions act as a filter based on our experiences and are then used to interpret our thoughts on what we see, hear and feel through our conscious thinking.

Our perceptions may always have an impact on our feelings and beliefs. As we continue to subject ourselves to the different emotional and psychological elements that change how we see our realities, those realities will change over time.

Individually, we may begin to interpret what we see through our many experiences and from those experiences we may draw on our own perceptions. It is not always possible to make others believe what we believe, just as it’s not always possible for them to make us believe what they believe.

Because our own view and interpretation on the world is different, so too will our character traits be different. How we conduct ourselves is how our behaviour may be defined.

It is important to understand our perceptions and how our perceptions may fit into our lives and into the lives of other people.

  1. I totally believe this.

    We can try to perceive how others are feeling, but we never really know. Our perceptions are totally different.

    I feel they could be the same if we are able to communicate our feelings well.

    1. I do too and like you believe communication is the key; although that’s not so easy to do, which is why we sometimes fail to convince others of our opinions.

      At best all we can do is reach a compromise.
