What you think of me is none of my business

I just finished a few days with a friend who was feeling that I was not valuing our relationship as much as he thought I could. We had a great chat and reached a greater level of communication. He was open and honest about his feelings plus he also gave me a chance to communicate my feelings. All good!


So, what's your point Matt?


Well you see, the whole relationship thing had been going on in his head for months. At no point did he get on phone and call me about his feelings. He actually started a whole dialogue in his head about what I would say and what I must have been thinking.


It reminded me of the saying;


WHAT YOU THINK OF ME IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS


I want to twist that a bit and say,


WHAT I THINK IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS


So here's the thing…


Stop creating stories in your head about what may or may not be true. Don't assume that you know what is going on in my head, and as friends, lets make sure we agree to check in frequently about what we think may be going on.
