You’re Not Them and They’re Not You

Nobody ever wants to feel alone or discover an inability to connect with the people around them. Every person will have their own perception of what would make them happy and how they think others should respond. No matter the level of concentration that a person places into how to get that response, a person will never be ensured to receive the reaction they anticipated.

Sometimes questions will arise after the disappointment. How could they not know that I wanted them to have this response? How could they have responded that way? Shouldn’t they have known that I did this for them? A person may choose to ask these questions in many ways and at many times but there is only one truth that will remain and be the answer. You are not them and they are not you. There is no real way of predicting how another person will react in that moment. The only thing a person can do is try their best and hope that the right time was chosen to enliven understanding.

When will the right time be? A person will never have full control over life to know exactly when that perfect moment will be but if a person chooses to just think about the idea and wait, they may be completely deprived of their opportunity. Even if it is not meant to be, how would a person know if they don’t try?  Accept your challenge and give it your best attempt. Life will not be able to be regulated by a person’s desire but, with positive intentions behind our actions, why would we need to require the perfect reaction?

As an individual, we will never possess the power to predict how another will be feeling or how they may need to respond but we will always have the competence to maintain our person and choose the actions that pertain to the person that we want to be. We will never be another and they will never be our person but we can all exist together united by an open and loving understanding that we are each unique.
