Let’s unpack the kick we might perceive we may have received from certain comments. As you may know, I believe it is always worthwhile to assess our perceptions and beliefs — especially if we feel they are negatively impacting our lives.✨

Want to have more fun communicating, consider any of these scenarios and try applying these responses, with a smile and a wink.✨

“It’s time to face the facts.”  (Whose facts?)

“Look what you made me do!” (What exactly did you do and how did I manage to do it?)

“Get real.” (Whose reality exactly?)

“You’re the worst driver.” (Who are you comparing me to?)

“Don’t force me to explode.” (Exactly how did I access that power?)

“People don’t like you.” (Who specifically are those that you claim dislike me?)

“You don’t look like you belong here.” (Who thinks I don’t belong?)

Reality? Perceptions? All are in the eye of the beholder.

Is this gaslighting? Therapy-speak? Or any other new age, internet-therapist phrase that’s gone viral?  Good questions. I don’t know. But, these are things I think about and share. Again…I’m not the expert…just a thinker who likes to analyze the source of my perceptions and those of others.
