You are who you choose to be...

Never have I ever been entirely skeptical of human behaviour.  I have always found it in my heart to try really hard to accept everyone despite their faults.  The reason being is that I fear that thinking badly of someone makes me seem arrogant in thinking I'm better than them when I may not know them entirely.  I always used to have my eyes wide open and be under the false assumption that everyone has a "story" about why they are like they are; nice or not.  I have come to realise that your background doesn't matter.  It shouldn't define who you choose to be later in life and if it does define you then that is your own personal choice; you choose to hold onto that past person, incident etc inside you that has gone now.  Everyone deserves a chance to prove themselves to someone and to have positive interactions with that someone, however once that chance has passed I will no longer hand out more like free flyers.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that there are a lot of dickheads in the world, quite frankly.  I have witnessed many careless people use and abuse the kindness of others recently and it has caused me to question personal incidents.  So now I feel I have the power to make my own judgements and to realise that not everyone is worth my time, patience and friendship and for me that is a big thing.  I wonder why I'd never noticed this before?  My reasoning is that perhaps I was not entirely confident in my own character and therefore felt it unfair to judge the character of others.

Anyone that was quite a ramble so hopefully the next entry will be more entertaining and food related :)
