So Rachel and I did a lot of work at the Dairy Bar last week... It looks AMAZING! I love change and rearranging things, we spent nearly the entire day there & it didn't even feel like it. When I am cleaning and organizing, time flyyyyyys by. I don't even realize it. Cleaning has always been something that I turn to when I am anxious, happy, sad, mad... you name it. It is such a great therapy for me.
So today's post... Let's talk about the judgement of character. I guess this might be more of a rant type post? Not sure.
Okay, how do you judge someone's character? Is it even possible? I know we are taught to now judge others, but in reality, everyone does it. "I like her shoes." "His haircut sucks." "Awww, she is such a sweet girl!" It doesn't matter if it is a positive thought or a negative thought, it is still a judgement.
So let's take me for example. I have gotten screwed over in my life many times by different types of people... I mean, who hasn't gotten hurt by someone at one time or another? I am such an extrovert with a very positive and radiant energy, I draw others towards me. I am going to just come out here and say it... I am not good at reading people.
Like I said, I am a positive person, so I always look for the positives in people. Whether or not I judge them off the bat negatively, the time that I do engage in conversation with them, it is normally positive. I am very easy to talk to, and I am good at making new friends, but sometimes, I wonder if I am making the right types of friends.
Rachel and I had a conversation about this. She can read people. She is an extrovert, but oddly, very reserved. She will be friendly with people but she never takes it farther than that. I think that is a very good trait to have, I envy that about her.
Dani, my cousin, doesn't get along with her roommates. And as her roommates keep tending to act like brats towards Dani, she doesn't let it get to her. These girls were once her very good friends, then all of a sudden this happens...Is it true that sometimes you just cannot see a persons true colors?
Honestly, I do think my biggest issue is that I look for the absolute best in everyone. I have the tendency to sacrifice my own happiness for others, I know, how beautiful right? WRONG. It never leads to something good. Especially not in this sense. You would think that you would learn after the first, or at least hopefully second time. Not this girl!
Would you change your ways and stand up for yourself more? Or would you feel blessed that you see the absolute best in people? Gotta take the good with the bad.
