I can’t be the only one that has these random, mind twisting thoughts that just pop into my head. Well at least I hope I’m not.
Have you ever stopped and realized, a different version of you exists in the minds of everyone who knows you.
Think about that and the ramifications. Every person you meet will likely feel differently about you. Every person you meet, as they get to know you, will think differently about exactly what kind of person you are. The more they get to know you, that version will get better or worse. The scary part is how quickly that version can change.
Someone can meet you, see the good deeds you do and see you as one type of person. You can make one single comment or do one simple thing and that version of you completely changes in their minds. Sometimes good, sometimes bad but I’m sorry to say, usually for the worse.
What bothers me is how easily someone’s version of us can change based on nothing we did or said. Someone else can repeat gossip, claim you said or did something or comment what what type of person you are to them, and the other person’s version usually reflects that comment. It’s a shame because most times we never have the opportunity to challenge what someone said about us or what someone claimed we said or did. People are so quick to believe the negative.
How do we resolve this? Be the best version of you that you can be. Be happy with who you are. Don’t sweat what someone else’s version of you is.
Peace out to all your versions.
