Let's face it, we all live our lives based on our own perceptions and experiences. And, that is OUR reality! But, for some, is that TRULY the reality of what is going on in the world today? Not necessarily. But, maybe that's EXACTLY the way they like it! Some don't really want to see, hear or feel the reality of the real world. And that's how they live their entire lives - numb, unfeeling - with no sense of what is going on in or around them. That's how they choose to live their lives ANd, that is certainly their choice!
On the other hand, there are others that want to know exactly what's going on.
Give me the good with the bad and let me deal with it all. I want to know what's going on. I don't always like want I see and hear, but it is what it is. I must face it and deal with it.
And, who determines who is living their life the correct way? Interesting question... with a simple answer...NO ONE! We all have the choice to live our lives the way we see fit.
We can sugar coat life's ups and downs anyway we want to, but that doesn't change the reality of what is really going on.
For me, I'm a big believer in saying it like it is. And, that's not always the popular approach. A situation is what it is. So, why beat around the bush? Sometimes people want to hear it, and often times people don't! I'm not interested in forcing my opinions down someone's throat, but if you ask, I'm going to say it the way I see it.
You know, just because you don't say something, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
And, just because you don't choose to see something that appears to others to be right in front of us, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
And, just because you choose not to hear some type of bad news, it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.
Your sense of reality determines how you perceive things going on around you in the world.
People's perceptions are different and always will be.
And, that's what makes the world go 'round!
