Perception

Last nite I was having dinner with my friend, who broke up with her LOOOONG time BF. They were together for 14 years till early this year when they broke up. So we were talking about that, she was telling me her side of the story that how painful it was and is. Her emotions toward that guy is still there and she still has a soft corner for that guy. Though after their break-up she got new BF but that affair didn't last long and that guy moved to another city. She said she got engaged with this new guy thinking that engaging herself with this new guy might help her in overcoming the sufferings from the previous relationship but things didn't work out the way how she wanted.

This leads me to think about "Perception" and how it effect things in the Real World.

Few days back, i was watching a movie named - Doctor Strange. In that movie there was 1 sequence where this young muscular fellow try to pull few big stones and was not able to and then 1 old guy just pull them very easily.

Young guy - How did you manage to do that?
Old guy - Things appear how you perceive them to be, you perceived them to be very heavy that's the reason they are heavy and you are not able to pull them. I perceive them to be very light so am able to pull them easily.

Many a times we say that you need to have strong "Will Power" to achieve something, basically what we are doing is setting our "Perception" that whatever we are want to achieve or whatever goals we have set are not difficult and we are capable enough to do that. Once our perception is set then every thing seems to be very smooth and easy and we accomplish what we want.

well... I have to accept to all that you wrote but you cant deny one thing... a gal.. especially the heart of the gal doesnt knw perceptions or laws or theories or whatever nonsense...

If u even have a soft corner for someone.. you can go on to the extend for dieing for him / her...

What I will suggest to your friend is NOT to try and forget the guy.. the more she tries.. she more she will remember and the more it will hurt for she will remember the break up...

Instead remember the good days they had and smile.. they give you strength in a way to move on.. trust me I have tried it!
