Perceive DON'T Assume

September 1, 2019

๐Ÿ’— PERCEIVE don't ASSUME
While catching up over lunch with a good friend today, we both discovered we had the same courtship rule; we would never date younger men.

When asked why I felt that way, I automatically responded, "Older men are just more mature".
Intuitively, she concluded, "Hmm, so it isn't really about their age, it's about their maturity level?!"
As this "aha moment" hit us, we sat there staring at each other, letting the reality of this new truth settle in our hearts.
Then she said, "How about we both agree to let maturity levels, not age, be a new factor?"

I had been dismissing possibilities due to my misled assumptions. The truth was years ago I had formed this mindset while sifting through my short, intense season of dating. My conclusions were based on the personal dating biases of my 17 year old self. I was letting this small sampling become a permanent filter of how I saw men. I needed a new, accurate set of parameters!

Needless to say, thanks to my friend I left with a new set of lenses. I need to learn to take the time to PERCEIVE the truths and not default to my ASSUMPTIONS.
