Perception Versus Reality

Question: “How are things going, both in perception and reality?”

This topic comes up a lot for me lately. As I dig into a reply I find myself grappling with a significant gap. I know there’s bound to be a distance between perception and reality, yet often I don’t know how something is perceived because I’m not listening well. Or, I don’t know the truth in order for my answer should point to something real.

Answer: I have work to do on both ends in order to answer first for myself, then provide the feedback to the original asker.

The beauty of this prompt is that it rewards more questions.

  1. I think perception is the only thing that matters. Say if you’re perceived to be a lousy partner by your partner, you are a lousy partner, no matter what the reality is. Perception is reality.
