People walk in and out of our lives everyday. The length of time a certain person stays in your life is what varies. Every new person you meet has a distinct personality that makes them original. First impressions are not good measures of compatibility because your first thoughts are completely subjective. You base your first opinion of a person by his or her appearance, and the things you’ve heard about them. To truly understand the person behind the stereotypical mask, you must talk to them. Find out what these new people are about, what they’ve been through, and what their aspirations are. Stop judging people, educate yourself, and create friendships.
