A perception is not necessarily true but colored by our beliefs,
prejudices and experiences. The same situation could bring about
different reactions depending on individual perceptions.
A message sent with the kindness and regard could be
percieved as rude or discourteous by one individual and
differently by another, depending on their prior experiences.
I have a friend my age who calls everyone by "Honey" which
is a no no in my book having been called that by young
receptionists and assistants in deference to my age.
But she means it in the best of terms as a dear friend.
Same words, different perceptions and realities. Tell me
your thoughts about these two important words.
