My beloved daughter,
In life, do not spend a lot of time believing you can read other people’s
minds or that they can read yours. This notion can cause problems. Honest,
simple communication is the best way to maintain healthy relationships.
I emphasise again – try not to read minds. It just complicates relationships!
And accepting the other person as they are is also very important! We often
expect the opposite person to behave or say things in a certain way, fitting
into our preconceived notions. It is necessary to remember that individuals
are different and come from different backgrounds, and who they are now
has been shaped by situations and events which are quite different from
yours, so their thinking about a certain situation may or may not align to
Trust your own judgment. Go with your gut. Trust people until they give
you a reason not to. If you feel uncomfortable with something, trust your
feelings and say what’s on your mind. If you’re feeling insecure about a
situation, say what’s on your mind.
Try to avoid getting into the temptation to read minds and arriving at
conclusions in haste. Try and have an open mind as you go into a
relationship be it personal or business, and make your decisions on facts as
presented or seen in each given situation.
So my darling, don’t let preconceived notions colour your relationships.
Go with the flow and make up your mind rationally about the relationships.
