Question: How do you know your perceptions are real?
Answer: Most of the time, they’re not. I tend to think in a certain way, which usually doesn’t provide the correct reality. For me personally, I tend to have a pessimistic outlook (to prevent false hope and letdown). I have gut feelings in situations, which could be completely true…but I always have to remind myself that unless I ask or seek the truth, I don’t know for sure.
