Recognizing Distortion

Many obstacles exist in our mind rather than in reality, but when we deal with them as though they were real, we stumble. We may defensively approach someone who is not an aggressor, or overreact to trivia as though they were catastrophes. An innocent remark can be perceived as an insult, and our angry reply can convert a friend into an enemy. A simple inquiry, What did you mean by that? can clarify a comment. Or we can ask objective observers for their interpretation. We need all our energy to deal with real difficulties in life. We can ill afford to squander strength on nonexistent obstacles.
