You'd love me if you knew me

We all have been there, we meet someone and right off you know they do not like you. As a teen I could not imagine anything more dreaded than not being liked. It was often like walking a tightrope, constantly trying to figure out how to make external feelings come to my favor. Forward many years later to the present and incidents like these pass leave me undisturbed. I have been there and know how it it to believe your own self-made walls more than truth and reality in order to simply shut someone out based on a few mere facts or assumptions. So when I encounter people who I immediately feel shut me out, for whatever reason, I never hold it against them for they are simply paying more attention to their assumptions than what is really there. I truly believe in my heart that in order to evolve as human beings, we need to question and begin breaking down these pre-made walls of assumption and see people for who they are.

  1. Absolutely true.Questioning ourselves and our perceptions and assumptions is
    daunting for many. I sometimes laugh at myself just realizing the small things that can influence me.
