See that last two words?? No pretensions!
And yet almost everyone spouting that drivel is being exactly that! Pretentious!! Who the heck do they think they are? Do they not know how hard it is to be true to oneself? To not give in to an argument because if you stand up for yourself the argument escalates? That can be dangerous! No way I am going to do that!! I detest conflict of any kind! I would rather just take it, or walk away, or ignore it or....
Do you agree? Are you nodding your head in agreement? Ok, then we really need to talk! Because your PERCEPTION of what you are seeing and reading is actually triggering you into giving up your power. Read that again. Your PERCEPTION is triggering you into giving up your power. And just when you thought you were in control. Nope.
When we react in fear or anger, disgust or flippancy, about something someone else is carrying around, ie; their ideologies or belief systems or verbiage, that is a trigger within us to something we do not understand or believe/perceive ourselves capable of. WHAT?? Yes!
Our perception of everything around us and how it works, is truly what limits our own internal growth. We need to let go of our own preconceptions, our own internal dialogues. These are things put there; programmed, if you will, by society, our families, our environment, and every person on the planet perceives this reality differently!
If you want to learn more about perception and how learning how to shift that perception can help you take back your own power and allow you to flow in the energies of this reality instead of fighting through it, then contact me through my site and let’s sit down and talk. Don’t let your perceptions hold you back!
