Perceptions are powerful things that vary from person to person. Everyone has different perceptions of the world, themselves, and the people around them. Knowing how your perceptions are affecting your mindset and daily life can have a large impact on your happiness.
What Are Perceptions?
Many view perceptions as a physical sense of how we see the world which has led us to the agreed upon basic rules of our reality. Up is up, down is down, and so on. The truth is that definition only scratches the surface of what perception really is. Perceptions are the eyes we use to see the world around us but operates at every level of our being. It is how our hearts perceive what our eyes are seeing and how that perception affects our mindset.
Our perceptions include both positive and negative thoughts. Negative perceptions can be incredibly damaging to our quality of life and relationships. Viewing the world with a negative and judgmental heart can create a sense of disliking the world around you. This results in not exploring the experiences in life to the fullest. Changing negative perceptions to positive ones can be a difficult task, but well worth the effort it takes.
