Thought of the Day

Something someone told me a while ago, though I forget who it was. I just took this from memory.

Trying to learn who someone is from what they say about themselves is like trying to read a book by glancing at the first page and guessing what comes next. You might get some of it right, but how about you just spend time with the person and see what happens next?

Thing is, I’d love to tell you that a person’s evaluation of him or herself is completely true and can be taken at face value, but let’s face it – a lot of what we say about ourselves is who we’d like to be, and not who we are now.

You can only get closer to someone by spending time with them. So, stop theorizing, and get to know the person – if they don’t want to spend time with you, that should tell you something, too.
