We humans are meaning-making machines. We see the world through the lens of our own personal belief system and then we give it meaning. The way we interpret things in the present moment is determined by our past experiences.
We experience the world and our relationships through the lens of our personal belief system. Conflict can occur when our INTERPRETATION of what is happening is different than someone else’s. We think that everyone’s experience is the same as ours – but that is where we are misguided.
Heartbreak and heartache is part of the human experience and can hurt just as much as a physical injury. Our society doesn’t seem to view it this way or create the time and care needed to allow our hearts to heal in the same way we would need time and care for a broken bone to heal.
