When someone says something to you, they might want you to comprehend it in a way that gives validation to their thoughts.
And there are two ways in which you can react to those situations;
- You interpret exactly in the same way, that the other person wants you to interpret
- You interpret in a completely different way, which does not validate the other person’s expectation.
What’s the fundamental principle on this?
As soon as we observe, see or listen something, it filters through our core beliefs, values and experiences ( that has been created over a period of years ) and ultimately propel us to react and give meaning to those situations and statements accordingly.
Mental maps that we have created for ourselves, foster our reaction and response. The extent to which we are prepared to assign meaning to new situations by unfolding our limiting belief system, ultimately helps us to evolve and enrich experience of our lives. That’s where you keep surprising yourself with your self evolvement.
Our flexibility to challenge our existing beliefs , thought patterns and experiences becomes the first page of our self discovery.
