As children, we’re told and believe many things by adults and that’s the way it should be. But what happens when an adult tells a child that everything will be okay, but in reality that child is left with a situation where that clearly doesn’t happen?
What if that were to happen where a relationship ended, or just before a parent died? We’d be left with problems that would never be resolved, in a place that would bring about different thoughts and a completely different understanding.
I have learned over the years not to put too much importance on situations or events that happen in my life, but instead try to understand why those situations or events arise instead. That way I don’t get upset if the outcome isn’t what I expect. That said, although we may understand a given situation, we still have to understand the person behind a situation and that’s always a little more difficult.
Would that change the way we perceive that person? I believe it would, but that we mustn’t draw too much importance to what a person says, but instead try to understand why that person will say what they say. Once we understand the person, we will understand why they will say what they say. From my own experiences of life, people often say things that don’t turn out the way they say they will.
Finally, we can never change what a person says or why they say what they say. We have no control over other people’s thoughts. All we can do is change ourselves and our perceptions on what they say and that’s what I always try to do.
