I like looking at things and considering them in different perspectives. Of late, I have realized that most people I know or I've met, have the tendency to believe the worst in other people, be they strangers or familiar. Has this tendency been always there, staring at me glaringly in the face, and I have not noticed or maybe I have refused to notice?
This brings to mind one of my musings, "
Can we stop placing people into neat little boxes of society's classifications? Give people a chance to, as I always say, 'box' themselves? Obviously, we can't look at everyone through rose-coloured glasses but not everyone is the 'everyone is doing it'-type either.
I listen to my instincts when it comes to people, with some people I get the 'bad vibe' and others the 'good vibe' but more often then not the vibe is in-between. So far, I haven't been wrong. I 'flow' well with the 'good vibe' people and try to surround myself with such but I have the in-between ones too. With the 'bad vibe', I am polite, civil, all the good adjectives, but there is always the wall of 'please, don't get too close.' Perhaps these are my neat little 'boxes'. I guess we can't help but classify people, if not out loud maybe in our minds, but first let us give them a chance to prove us wrong or rather 'box' themselves?
Enjoy the weekend.
