Humans tend to look at people and make judgements. It is easy to tell a story in our heads about someone we’ve just met. We can make assumptions and have opinions without knowing their truth. The reality is that we don’t know what the other person is going through. If a person dresses up it doesn’t mean they are snobby. The clothing may make them feel confident. A person who is not that talkative can have social anxiety.
Everyone that walks among us is unique. Not everybody does things that you do or has the same beliefs you may have. That is a gift. We are all individuals with the freedom to express who we are in this world. Some may say hello by nodding, smiling, winking or speaking. It doesn’t matter how they do it because it has the same meaning.
This is the beauty of being you. There are no rules on how to view the world. If you’re an artist or a mom, a mathematician, business person. we are all needed. Variety is not only the spice of life, it’s the necessity. The world needs you just the way you are because you are special. Next time before we judge, let’s take the time and show compassion. We are all in this together. You be you, but be kind too.
