– It’s not a fact, it’s a belief.
What did you say?
– This phrase that you repeat in your mind, it’s not a fact, it’s a belief.
Well, I don’t feel loved.
– A feeling is not a fact either.
So why do I have this feeling?
– The feeling comes from the belief.
And where does this belief come from?
– You fabricate your beliefs.
Based on what?
– Based on your interpretations.
If someone punches me in the face, how am I supposed to interpret it?
– How many times have someone punched you in the face, Daemon?
– Give me a concrete example. At this moment, is someone doing something to harm you?
Right now? . . . Everyone is ignoring me.
– How do you know that?
I’m not getting any calls. I’m not receiving any messages.
– Maybe they are sleeping. Maybe they are busy, trying to survive. Maybe they are dreaming of you right now. You don’t know.
You’re right. I don’t know.
– You base your feelings on your interpretation of non-occurring events. Then you choose to believe that your feelings are telling you the truth about the situation. Then you feel even worse. You keep doing this and become trapped in this depressing cycle. Stop it, idiot!
Hey, you just called me an idiot! You’re hurting my feelings!
– I said that because I love you. See, you can take any insult and turn it into something positive. You can change your interpretations and metamorphose your beliefs.
I don’t believe you.
– Liar. You do.
Come here. Give me a hug.
