We interpret our life based on events of the past. Set in our subconscious and often out of reach we continue to judge and compare every thought that comes through our conscious that took place, days weeks, months or even years ago.
We perceive our thinking through realities taken from our past, based around a distorted version of how we see that experience. As we live our lives we continue to perceive our life through distorted realities of how we want to see those experiences, in effect being prisoners to our perceptions.
The way each of us see our realities will differ. Siblings in the same family, will perceive their experiences, responses and interpretations differently. But being a prisoner to our perceptions will always be the source of our misery, if we’re struggling to let go, or we feel aggrieved with the way our lives have turned out.
The truth is we take what we want to take, what works for us in our reality. And somewhere along the lines we still believe our reality is right, trying to force our opinions on others, who interpret what we see differently.
But conflicts will always play out due to our differences in beliefs and perspectives, eventually trapping us further into those haunting perceptions.
