Pattern matching

Recently I wrote a post about feeling uncool(http://www.stepanp.com/posts/158). Though the conclusion is solid, I was completely about initial thoughts.

In the span of the last few days, the people who I thought didn’t like me, totally did. They were awesome, and we became great friends.

Why did I think they didn’t like me? I was pattern matching from childhood. I.e These types of people are ‘cool’, they probably like to do x and y, so they must not like me.

My head ran way too quickly. That’s an embarassingly dumb way to think, but hey, it happens :P.

So to update, when you feel you’re not liked, it might actually not be the case. Try to see if your pattern matching, and interrupt it.
