Mind reading

One of the biggest obstacles in creating positive personal relationships is that we often expect others to be mind readers.We have clearly in our own minds defined our needs in relationships but may expect others to know them without clearly giving necessary information. If there are feelings due to expectations that are not met it is easy to make judgments which may not be valid.

“If they cared about me they would know what I need” may be a refrain that is not valid.Requesting behavior from others has a higher probability of happening than expecting them to be mind readers.Human needs and feedback are essential ingredients in any relationship.
I find it is worthwhile to examine whether I have been open enough with needs before running off into judgment city about my relationship with others.
