Filling in the blanks

  • They didn’t call me back…
  • They didn’t wave…
  • They didn’t reply to my email…
  • They didn’t return my “wink”…
  • They didn’t like my post…
  • That person is staring at me…

It must be because… __________.

Don’t fill in the blanks for things you don’t know the true answers to with negative things that you convince yourself are the truth.

When we don’t get feedback from an event, we often fill in the missing information in a way that becomes our own version of the truth.

We then refer to this “filler” as if it is the reality of the situation, when it could be far from it.

So beware of filling in the blanks.

Either find out the truth or let it go. Because believing something negative that isn’t true, can not only have a significant impact on how you respond to a given situation, it can also have an adverse affect on your work, your relationships, and your sense of self-worth.
