WHAT YOU THINK YOU KNOW, YOU PROBABLY DON’T?

14 Oct

Those who always know what’s best are a universal pest. –  Piet Hein.

Just like no one knows your business, think about that when you tell someone else you know theirs.  And when you say, all another person know about you is only what you tell them, remember “no one is spilling all the beans to you either.”

When choosing phrases like, ” I know you better than you know yourself”  or  ” You look like you did it.”   Wait, let’s try, when telling someone something about yourself, and they imply they don’t believe you, (calling you a liar) over something they only know because you told them.  It’s time to Step Back Something is Wrong.

If that highly insightful person is you; What you think you know, you probably don’t.

INSIGHT: A penetrating mental vision or discernment; (to recognize) the faculty (an ability, natural or acquired) of seeing into inner character or underlying truth.  (Understanding the true nature of things;) give me a break.  We all have this gift to an extent, but if you call me out, and your reasoning is,  “You know me, better than I,”  you should think again.

What you think you know about me or anyone else, you probably don’t.  And that’s a fact; check the Farmer’s Almanac, or where ever you are getting your information from.  I am glad I got out of the business of knowing everybody better than I know myself.  It took up too much of my time, plus I was wrong most of the time.  You?

Some take statements as if they were excuses.  “I didn’t stop like I promised you because I didn’t feel good.”   Yep!  Something is definitely wrong if the response is,  “That’s a lie, you just didn’t want too.”  I would be evaluating our relationship from a different point of view while questioning its character.

Those types of reactions would have me wondering what kind of person do you really think I am, and what would cause you to think so negatively of me?  So, I guess I would be lying if I said, “If you think I’m lying, maybe I am doing something wrong to give you that opinion?”

Perhaps, you are accused of trying to smart talk your way out of admitting their right about you, causing the start of another conversation.  More like a fight; after all, They do know you better than you do yourself.    🙂

What else scares me is because I hang with the person that thinks so lowly of me, they may feel we are alike; taking their cue from the company I keep; Them.

One of the easiest ways to find out what a person thinks of you is to listen; they will tell you because they can’t keep it.  Our unwanted and uninvited opinions are given out as easily as giving “candy given to a baby.”  We just can’t help our “know it all selves.”

So the next time you know me better than I, keep in mind: During the flames of controversy, opinions, mass disputes. conflict, and world news, sometimes the most precious, refreshing, peaceful words to hear amidst all the chaos are simply and humbly ‘I don’t know.  Criss Jami

Thank you, Lord, for all you do, and it is in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else experiencing issues with your site. It appears
    as though some of the text in your posts are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them
    as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen previously. Cheers

    Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to
    make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might
    be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    With thanks!

    Greetings, I believe your blog might be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful blog!

    You can book your package online since the booking conditions are available.

    Many of these rose varieties also emit a sweet perfume that
    are great for a ceremony such as being married. The famous Hilton Metropolitan Hotel can be found
    very close to National Exhibition Centre and the Birmingham Airport.
