⚖️What if we search for evidence that proofs the story we made up in our head?⚖️ .
What if you are in a situation where you have the feeling someone is not 100% honest with you, that something is missing in the bigger picture; that the situation might isn’t exactly as presented?
A few days ago I was in a situation kind of like that. The situation seamed unreal and made up.
So I was going completely wild in my head. I was just so sure that I was lied at. At least that was the story in my head. Maybe deep down inside I did know that it was not the case because I stayed relatively calm, which would never ever be the case if I would have been 100% sure. Dishonesty is the one thing I cannot stand; it ends everything without any exception.
So what happened? I found a ton of possible explanations which would proof my perfectly made up story. Luckily I decided to go to bed and postpone thinking about it. There was no way I could change the situation anyway.
The next morning I was like: Objection! Maybe don’t think about it too much, better take a look at the facts. Maybe it’s not as it seems. Maybe I was concluding too fast just because I was too emotionally involved.
Taking a step back, letting a bit of time pass and then assess the situation again was maybe the best thing I could do. It turned out that I was not right in the first place. I will not say the situation was perfect, if so I would never have felt that way but at least it was not as bad.
What I learned from it: Maybe sometimes we judge to hard just because our emotions block our ability to think straight. Maybe it’s better to take a step back and see it for what it actually is not for what we think it is.✌🏻
: objection was honestly the exact word that came to my mind and it took me a bit to remember who gave me such a strong memory of this phrase that it even pops up in my head when I am running wild. Now I know 😂
I just watched the first episode. So good! Thanks for recommending.
