You Never Really Know

Life is full of surprises and uncertainties. You never know what's going on in someone's head. Things may not be what you perceive them to be. We all create our own realities and co-exist with one another. Generally there's a seemingly smooth integration between each unique individual's own world that we forget that although there's an interconnectedness between us all that there's also a separation that can't be fused together. This is both a blessing and a curse.

Our thoughts and feelings are sacred, powerful, and very personal. Even the most open person in the world can never truly share their feelings with others because our feelings our connected within ourselves; it's an experience we're feeling because of who we are. Each person experiences happiness, sadness, loneliness, and every other emotion in a unique and individual way. Yes, there's a universal understanding that allows us identify it. But it's still different. It's that disconnection that keeps us from fully knowing the feelings of others. Some people even hide feelings from themselves. I've been guilty of it.

So how can we expect others to have a clue about what we're feeling? It's not always realistic, and all it takes is that one misinterpretation or unawareness of certain feelings, even just one, to distort the truth. Sometimes a variation of the truth is still the truth. Feelings are complicated like that. I think it's important to inventory our feelings and be aware of this.
