This is pretty cool that this is the topic today. I was planning on writing about interpretations today.
I find it very interesting how much wasted thought goes into misinterpretations and not only wasted thought but wasted time and effort as well.
Okay so here is the back end- we as individuals are mostly significantly different from each other- this is reflected by the way we perceive/interpret the same exact situation. Our perception stems from our own personal experiences/wisdom. But remember now each of us are significantly different based on our own experiences which includes nature and nurture.
So here’s where the wasted time comes in okay- So lets take this very common example:
We call a friend and they are oddly cold and short. We hang up and the first wasted thought is – Are they upset with me? Have I done something etc. etc. Now meanwhile it has/had absolutely nothing to do with us. Where did that thought come from though?
Is it because we know that if we were that way on the phone it could only mean that?
Hmm… see the thing is we will never really know-
So like one of my favorite #sting songs here Desert Rose- We will for the most part interpret it based on our most current situations and past experiences, our general wisdom- (that’s why love songs makes sense only when we too are in love ? ) Unless off-course we hear it from the writer himself exactly what they meant, we will never really know.
Be careful not to waste your important time, giving too much thought and grievance, trying to figure people or things out. We can never think/act like another person, we can only truly know our selves. All we can do is have good thoughts, actions and deeds.
