We live in our own little bubbles of reality. Everything we see is filtered through a very personalized lens of perception. This filter determines what we actually see and how we interpret it. If something appears in our reality that doesn’t fit into our belief system, we may miss it. Our imperceptible and unconscious filter is powerful and has an enormous impact on how we spin others’ behavior. That’s why it’s so important not to believe everything we think or even see. As Shakespeare said:

“There is nothing either good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.
