Ever had anybody act a certain way the first time you meet them and then the next time they’re completely different? At first they act like you’re destined to be best friends for life, but the next time you see them they act like they don’t even know you.
Most people automatically think that maybe they said or did something wrong. That’s not really because we think the world revolves around us, it’s just because we naturally want to be liked and when we see that somebody doesn’t seem to like us we take that very personally. So why does that happen?
The first thing is we often don’t realize when we see somebody we’re only seeing one side of who they are. We’re seeing them in a glimpse, in a day of their life and we have no idea what went down before and after we saw them. Don’t forget that they can either be going through a lot, take medication, might not be feeling themselves, etc. So remember when you see somebody you have no idea if they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, suffering from depression or other issues, or how just having a bad day, so we shouldn’t assume it has something to do with us or that we are the problem.
The second piece of advice is to remember that you can get a completely different person the third time you see them, but as long as you’re focused and anchored and you understand where you’re coming from you can take a step back and realize that their attitude. being completely different from last time, has absolutely nothing to do with you. Remember this because a lot of the times it can take us off target and make us feel a little insecure. So the next time this happens just remember that they might be having a rough day or even a rough life.
All in all, do not let one person who may not be acting the way you expect get to you. Don’t assume it is your fault. Being compassionate and realizing that it has nothing to do with you can take you further toward living your true life.
