Your Overactive Imagination

I have a fantastic imagination as I am sure you do too. When someone does not return my call (yes, it does happen), or respond to an email, or ignores me after repeated attempts... I begin to wonder.

And the stories I make up about what this person is thinking, feeling, and doing regarding me are really interesting. In fact, it is amazing how, in my own mind, everyone is thinking about or acting in a certain way because of little old ME! (Now it would be helpful for you to also refer in this moment, to my last blog: My Favorite Rule.)

The reality is, people are busy, they're thinking about themselves, and whatever story you've made up as to why you haven't gotten through to this person is totally inaccurate. It's your overactive imagination making up stories! So the next time you are talking yourself out of recontacting this person, remember that you have no idea what's really going on and you are simply going to find out. True, it may take a while! But you will eventually find out the real story, and I promise - it's all about them - not you.

This is so true! I know I think my message is the greatest and I wonder why no one agrees...and then I realize that I spend more time on my sites than anyone else. And when I do find a site I like I stay for a few days and then I'm off to something else. Something I really need to work on!
