Something I constantly find myself doing is trying to make sense where sense is not meant to be made. I am by nature an honest person and when it comes to dishonesty well, I just don't get it. When things leave me feeling uneasy, I end up contemplating; maybe they mean this?, maybe they meant that?, I'm sure they were just rushing through and forgot a part, or I probably heard it wrong. But no. Odds are they did mean what they said, they did not forget anything, and I did hear them right.
As you get to know people you develop an understanding of who they are. You also develop an understanding of who they are not, which can be a double-edged sword of sorts. Personally because of this I tend to raise a brow at most (not all) things that seem to be out of the ordinary. At this time I begin my downward spiral of attempting to put two and two together in hopes to make four.
However, we will never be able to add up to four if the truth is missing.
Even though I am still working on accepting the fact that you can't make lemonade out of limes I like to think I have learned a few tips over time to snap me back to reality when needed. They would be:
• follow your gut
• don't try to solve it
• not everyone is going to be sincere
• take what's in front of you for what it is
1) Do you find yourself doing this at times?
2) Are there certain things that trigger you to do it?
3) What helps when a situation doesn't sit well with you?
