How Do You Deal With How People Perceive You Or Your Actions? by DeluwaTalks: 12:11pm On Oct 25, 2019
How do you deal with people who seemed not to understand you? For instance, you might see yourself as bold and a risk taker. The people you mingle with tend to see you as arrogant and reckless.

How do you equally manage this within the context of relationship with your partner(Engaged or married)?

Let us hear from you.

Interesting! The critical part here is never to live your life based on other people's opinion.

Sometimes, someone might be doing things displeasing or even harmful to people around him or her. How do you deal with the situation when the person doesn't see anything wrong with that?

Perception is very important, there's no such thing is 'I don't care'.
Being able to mould your perception into exactly how you want it, is a gift that not a lot of people have.

For instance, you say you see yourself as bold and a risk taker, yet people around you misconstrue that as being arrogant and reckless.
The truth is that you are right about yourself, and they are also right about you -it's called perspective.

The problem with the mismatch is that you lack an ability called extrasensory perception (layman refer to this as 'people skills') - this ability is what allows a person view themselves impersonally, as if through the eyes of others, and then postures accordingly.

While it is okay to 'not care' what people think, unless you live alone on an island in the Indian Ocean without any human contact, then you will have to care what some people think of you at some point in life.

It's not necessary to write a thesis on the phrase "I dont care", please.

Nigerians are always experts on other people, never themselves.

You care but you spend 90% of your time insulting people you dislike (sometimes only because of their gender!) or who don't share your opinion just because you feel you're better than them, isn't that stupidity?

for myself..

I know you so much dislike the notion of anyone not kissing your ass, however you've been here a while and you're aware not everybody kowtows to your bigoted take on every issue.

At some point, you might begin to respect other people's opinions besides your own. Not that anyone thinks you'll ever change.

So, keep your fantasy gif showing who you wish you were, to yourself. You're still Nigerian.

���� for all the contributions!

I think we see things the way we are not the way they are says a wise man.

Two people can see the same thing yet ascribe different meanings to it.

Often times partners in a relationship drift apart in our quest to be right and the other person wrong. Unfortunately we forget that two people can see the same thing differently and both of them are right.

Why this difference? It is the way we are all wired largely in the programming from our past experiences.

My opinion? I feel strongly that we should take time to understand people before seeking to handle them. If this doesn’t happen, there is a likelihood that the relationship could degerate and possibly come to an end.
