Most people assume they know someone before they actually try and get to know them. I’m not blaming anyone for this because truth is that this is just the reality of our society today. People just love to assume what’s right by just a guess. When you see someone quiet, you assume they would rather sit on a corner reading their book than do something crazy. I’m not saying reading books is bad. I’m saying guessing someone’s life story just because of one specific thing they did, and assuming your guess to be right, that’s bad. That boy who you think likes to be left alone and doesn’t like having fun just because he’s quiet, you know what? He actually might be the kind of person who goes Bungee Jumping every day. Or perhaps every single day is a bit of an exaggeration, but you get my point.
It’s actually quite surprising how a person turns out to be totally different than you thought them to be. It is also quite surprising how many more friends you could have by just not judging someone’s entire life story by just looking at them.
Imagine if you met someone one day and she stepped on your toe by accident. You assumed she’s rude just by that one mistake she made which was, I repeat, an accident. Yet you choose to never talk to her because you know she’s rude, she stepped on your toe didn’t she? Now I know some of you are actually smart enough to know not to assume this, but this is also the same as assuming a quiet person is someone who isn’t fun.
Life is short and if you go on guessing everything on your own, you’ll never see the truth. Life is not a game of guess and assume. Life is a reality you live in and you get to make choices. Choices such as what to assume and what not to assume. If I stop and think about the society today, the favorite thing people like to do is ‘judge’. You say you hate it when people judge you but then the very next day, you’re the one judging someone else. And the worst part is that you don’t even realize it. You just end up making up your mind about a person, but you didn’t realize that what you’re doing is called judging.
I’m not saying everyone judges. Some sensible people still do exist and there is still some humanity left on this Earth. But to all those people who are quick to judge people without even knowing them… I suggest you should consider changing the way you live your life.
