So here’s my thing about perception. You cannot change the perception of another, but you can open a door for them to see things in a reasonable way. If someone has a certain perception of a person, what can you do to change that. Absolutely nothing. You can give a truthful or false statement about that person and their perception can either change or stay the same.

My mom always tells me, “Life is about choices” and at the end of the day all you can do is make the choice to be “This” way or “That” way. How does this tie into perception? The choices you make play into the situations you encounter in life, situations involve people, you make perceptions of people. Who are people? (Right!)

People are a decisive specimen that inhabits the Earth to provide, build and innovate within the Earth, while conforming to the ways of the world. Dragging you down, stabbing you in the back, cursing you, hurting you, mistreating you, so what is your perception of people. It’s your choice to think negatively about the people you encounter and perceive what you want, but at the end of the day love life, others and most importantly God to live above the situations you encounter.

Perception, what do you think. How do you feel about it? Choices? Choose wisely. The situations and people you encounter come and go. You got this. Just think about it.
