Everyone is living in a different mental universe to you


When you bring this awareness into your relationships, life changes.


You no longer assume another's behaviour means the same thing when they do something as it would if you did the same thing - the intention could be totally different. You no longer expect people to understand you without explaining because their experience isn't your experience. You no longer expect people to automatically know how to love you - you realise they probably treat you the way they would want to be treated in the same situation. You become curious to understand a different perception and open to working with this different reality and bridging the gap so that understanding and empathy pave the way for true intimacy.
