Do you make assumptions about people when you first see or meet them? We all do. We make assumptions based on skin color, accent, height, hair style, clothing, amount of makeup (or lack thereof) and smell. Then, within each of these categories we continue to make additional assumptions.
All of this happens before we even talk to the person. Consider this:
Our eyes deceive us from reality in a lot of cases.
Now, not all assumptions are wrong. If you see a guy wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun, then it is probably good to assume that he is not going to invite you out to lunch. Also, if you see someone running down the road with the bright colored county jail clothes on, you can safely assume they aren't just working out.
Today, try not to make assumptions about the people you see and meet.
Take a moment to let them tell their story. Your assumption may just be wrong.
