Perception is a funny thing, it can work for you or it can work against. It’s all in how you choose to look at things. I’ve been stung by my own perception more times than I would care to count. But each time reminds me that I need to change my outlook. No one is responsible for how I perceive things but me. If I choose to see something negative then that’s my choice to do so. However, I can also choose to see the positive in things as well.
There are times when it’s difficult to see things positively. There are so many ways to take things negatively, but the odd thing is that there is just as many positive ways to look at things as well. I find that when I find myself looking at something negatively that I need to take a step back and try to see if from a different angle. Sometimes it takes longer to get into a positive mindset about a situation, but it is possible.
It’s a struggle to change your perception on things. Sometimes even a minute to minute battle. But with the will and desire to change that perception, it is possible.
