Eating Humble Pie at times is necessary if I wish to make improvements with myself. I had jumped to a hasty conclusion before knowing all the circumstances of a situation. I refused to justify my behavior for I intended to improve the next time I interacted with someone when I don’t know their side of the coin.
Instead of going into guilt about how I acted in thought and emotion, I began to think about how we process information. Each of us being magnificently unique means we all process life differently. Why else do you think that witnesses at a crime scene, for example, or an accident scene, tend to have different stories about what happened?
Due to the individuality of who we are, our brains interpret life distinctive from that of everyone else. In hindsight when I understood all circumstances involved, I connected the dots as to why I inaccurately concluded what I did. I am a tad touchy these days when it would seem I’ve been wronged mostly because of what I was exposed to since March of last year. I’m a work in progress like everyone else. I sat myself down after I learned why the circumstances were not what I interpreted them to be. From there I became determined to learn this lesson so as not to jump to premature conclusions the next time something similar occurs.
Learning there is more to the story then what I know and that I am not always privy to what is happening within someone’s life, I am practicing self-control regarding hasty deductions. And with that, my vision becomes more encompassing as I peruse my mental folders that contain “past” interchanges. The victim’s voice is silenced in so that I may have the opportunity to grow and improve self. That is how the “could be’s” or “perhaps” arrive as I go through those folders, seeing possibly what may be unfolding in the other person’s life. It is only then I attain peace. I wait patiently for truth to be shown and then and only then, I know how to act within the parameters of a given situation.
To align my words today in this post, I edited every single picture below with a different processing effect. When you look at my images, think that depending on what mental and emotional processes you align yourself with, they will ultimately lead you to different outcomes. Your thoughts and emotions are energy and not technically you so I’m throwing that in as well to get you to think even more. (smile) Lately, I’ve really been focused on not laying blame at someone’s doorstep or allowing my ego who loves to play victim, get the better of me. Along with the best of them, I slip. Yet when I do, I roll up my sleeves and go to work on myself.
Enjoy my pictures. Hopefully my words have now got you thinking how exactly you process information. We could talk for days on this subject. SMILE!
