Individual Perception

Individual Perception refers to how a person interprets and understands the world around them. It is influenced by a variety of factors, including personal experiences, beliefs, values, culture, and cognitive processes.

Individual perception affects how we perceive and interpret sensory information, make sense of our surroundings, and form opinions and judgments about people, situations, and events. It can vary greatly from person to person, leading to diverse perspectives and interpretations of reality.

I appreciate that the Toxic Tenants are allowed their individual perception of events that took place, there is no factual evidence to back up their allegations. They claimed to have evidence for their allegations but I saw none.

All I see is that their perceptions are not based on facts they had but on their “feelings”. They are judging me based on their limited perceptions of who I am.

I am a very emotional person, you can tell by my writing, and sometimes my emotions tend to get in my way so I try very hard to find facts that I can cling to. Part of what I loved about working in Property Management is that there were so many rules to follow and I didn’t need to use my emotions. I had so many rules from various agencies that I needed to be mindful of and staying on top of them and any changes that occurred, was a full-time job in itself!

It’s great that I recognize my emotions and am actively trying to find facts to help me navigate these challenging situations I face. Balancing emotions and facts can be a valuable approach to decision-making and problem-solving and is something I try to do as much as I can.

Here are a few tips that I found helped me in my journey!

Acknowledge and allow your emotions: It’s important to recognize and accept your emotions as they arise. Emotions provide valuable information about your needs and desires. Allow yourself to feel and process them, rather than suppressing or ignoring them.

When I truly opened up about how I felt, I surprised myself! I was angry, more angry than I was in a very long time over the injustice of it all that I experienced. This anger led me to educate myself on toxic traits that I was seeing displayed and it helped me to release that anger.

I still get angry, mostly over the lack of support from the legal resources and the slowness of change. In recent weeks my research has shown me that things are changing and people have ways to protect themselves from similar situations. I am grateful for that!

Find a healthy outlet: Discover activities that help you release your emotions constructively. This could include writing in a journal, talking to a trusted friend or family member, practicing mindfulness or meditation, engaging in physical exercise, or pursuing hobbies or creative outlets.

I have done all of the above and it does help, especially my writing. I write a lot, not only on my Blog, but I am also working on a book! I love my walks out in nature too but haven’t been able to do that as much as I like lately. It has all helped me in innumerable ways!

Pause and reflect: When your emotions start to influence your decision-making, take a step back. Give yourself some time and space to reflect on the situation. Consider the emotions you are experiencing and how they might be affecting your perception of the situation or the decisions you are making.

This one is hard for me, as I am emotional and I tend to get defensive as a result but I am better at it than I was! I find it easier to walk away for a bit and take some time out to get my emotions under control before I continue.

Seek a balanced perspective: While emotions are important, it’s also crucial to consider factual information and logical reasoning. Look for evidence, gather relevant facts, and consider different perspectives on a situation. Assess both the emotional and logical aspects to find a well-rounded perspective.

I have been doing this almost every day for the past few years, looking for factual information and using logical reasoning to make meaning of my experience. As for the different perspectives? In reality, I don’t have many of those. Sure I heard from family who are aware of what I went through, but their response is to ignore it and I can’t do that.

Engage in critical thinking: Evaluate the credibility and validity of the information you find. Separate facts from opinions and biases. Apply critical thinking skills, such as questioning assumptions, seeking evidence, and analyzing potential outcomes. This will help you make more informed decisions.

This too is something I have been doing for the past few years, separating facts from their personal opinions and biases. I have questioned their many assumptions and as a result, made more informed decisions for myself. I sought evidence of what they claimed and found nothing to support them in their many written documents.

They are Adult Bullies who go out of their way to create personally titled websites where they cyberbully their targets with the contents. You can’t deny the factual evidence their own websites supply! as they are harassing others out of maliciousness. They share other people’s personal information while hiding their own, which is also factual!

Practice self-care: Taking care of your emotional well-being is essential. Engage in self-care activities like getting enough sleep, eating well, engaging in physical exercise, and practicing relaxation techniques. By nurturing yourself, you can create a more stable emotional foundation.

I have managed to ground myself in the past year. I no longer have insomnia, nor do I fear people and their intentions towards me anymore. I have come to know who I am and I am determined to ensure that I no longer am a Target by nasty past Tenants from the workplace in various websites they created in my name. I have options now that I didn’t have before and so does anyone else who becomes a target of these same individuals.

    Remember that emotions and facts can coexist, and finding a healthy balance between the two is crucial. It’s okay to rely on facts to support your decision-making process while still acknowledging and respecting your emotions. I try every day to find a healthy balance!
