Have you ever wondered what the other person is thinking about you when you are talking? Do they think you’re witty or interesting or just full of shit? Sometimes, when I’m making a point in a conversation, I wonder what the other person might be thinking. It’s just a very intriguing question. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be in another person’s mind, watching yourself through another person’s eyes. I just wonder how one perceives another.
I was watching a tv show, where a person was pretending to be dead and he stood behind a two way mirror while people talked about him. It was an eye opening experience for him. It lead him to realize who really cared about him in his life and who really didn’t. All those people he thought were very important suddenly became so distant. And the one he pushed away turned out to be the one who loved him and cherished him the most.
In life, we don’t often think about how people feel or perceive us. We just go on doing our thing, mostly always thinking its the right way. Sometimes, it’s good to take a step back and try to understand what the other person might be thinking or feeling.
