The world is defined depending on how the individual relates to the world.  We act and react according to the level of adaptability we can emotionally handle. The way we rationalize our view of the world relies on our perception of the events taking place around us.  Perception is the filter we use on how we see ourselves, how we base our limits on ourselves and our concept of reality. This Understanding is terms and conditions in which we live our life.

Perception has the stranglehold how we see everything and everyone. Some things are tangible, for example, tables, chairs, houses, and cars. No matter the make, cost, or brand; if a vehicle was to be pointed and asked, “What is that?” it will be defined as a car. A person was arguing that a cheaper, more reliable car is better versus someone who believes an expensive, luxury car is the route is the perception that kicked in. It’s like watching a show with your friend, although you sat together, attended the same play at the same time, and got up at the same commercial breaks. You and your friend can have vastly different opinions on the show. You may have found it entertaining, while your friend hated it, and will never watch the show again. Perception is what we base your life on. It’s the running theme of your life.

Perception is a bias; it’s the way we test the various scenarios and situations we go through. No Eastern, western, northern and south places in the world have had a successful brain transplant, in which the patient sees life as a different person.  Whether recognized as a safe or dangerous narrative, our perception gives us limits we go by and take. We know what we know, and we see what we see. Our perceptional limits are mainly responsible for how we internalize and externalize the world around us. In other words, our perception has to do with how we see ourselves in the world and how we think the world sees us.  We all have different mannerisms and attitudes depending on the level of familiarity and trust we have for the person(s). Alternatively, other people are showing you a version of themselves in the same vein. The world is comprised of a series of autobiographies that may or may never be released.

What’s beyond us is our reality. Humans tend to globalize particular life stages and act accordingly. We all have things we have done that others have done as well. Our sense of reality is what we think other people are and should be. Expression of our environment can be tricky, however. It can lead someone to judge others harshly for not meeting a personal standard they set for others to live. “If I can pay off my student loans, why not everyone else?” is an example of how someone can think because they have done something, that others should do it too, without taking the account that their life experience is not the life experience.

The waves and changes in how you view the world and yourself will change with time you have to yourself and others. Perception is what has us looking at the same work of art and having it affect us differently. There is no definitive way of how life is going to work other than the primary needs required for life to work. We are always who we are, even if we try to hide it. There is no way seeing life through someone else unless they explain to you how they look at things. Even then, the degree of comprehension is going to vary depending on how that information is perceived. Life and the reality that we believe is subjective. Everyone sees the world as theirs, and everyone is just living in it. Our perception is the protection that structures our concept of life.
