I fell in love with this word. Odd, I know but I have. When someone told me that “it was my perception” based on how irrational I was reacting one evening in my past life…lol. Since then, I have become mentally repetitious with as to stay in reality. I never realized how diffident this made me even being socially vibrant because my perception of self was just a walking talking contradiction (which many of us are). Now that I have added this luscious word to vernacular in all its simplistic yet complex form; my life went from black and white to color. I prided myself on believing that the things I imagined all made sense and yes some of it did but a lot of things were self-righteous leaving me unaware of how unattractive this unconscious attribute I possess. A repellent if you will. I now work to be more observant of my thoughts and behaviors that could send me back into a warped reality.
Tell me, have you perceived something to be that was not and it rendered you with a scarred ego? Leave your comments and stories below! I look forward to hearing all about them.
