Episode #236 with James Creighton-Loving Through Our Differences
disappointment and frustration, in their differences. “No one else experiences events in the same way that you do. No one else has the same experiences of gender, childhood, religion, culture, and community that have shaped you. No one else has exactly the same beliefs, values, or philosophy of life,” writes Creighton. “Because their emotional reality is different, other people — including people we love, like our partners — have different emotional reactions to things than we do. We run into trouble when we expect — or even sometimes demand — that other people have the same perceptions that we do, and we are disappointed in them if they don’t.”
