For most of my life I always felt that I had really good intuition when it came to forming friendships. I truly believed I could tell everything I needed to know about a person just by looking at them and observing how they behaved in public. One day, I learned that I had it all wrong. I misjudged a person, did not have any interest in a friendship because "she did not look like someone I wanted to be seen with". Can you imagine that? Then one day, because of mutual friends, we were introduced and I met the most awesome person who is now one of my best friends. Not only is she highly intelligent, a professional, but she also has a heart of gold. I have learned a very valuable lesson. And, to ease my shame, I confessed to her everything. I had to. So, never, ever judge another human being on their looks or actions. Always give them the benefit of a doubt....and if you are lucky like me, you might make a endearing friend for life.

Also me sometimes fell in this mistake to judge the friends from outside but the days taught me to control my self until I deal and live with any one to judge him.
My very best friend in my life used to try and escape my presence because he thought I looked like a goofball. This was during the mid eighties and I looked like a goofball but our friends were the same and eventually we ended up as best friends.
I truly LOVE this blog my dear sister friend!!!!!! I am the kind of person that has helped others learn to NOT judge a book by it's cover. A good example were two amizingly caring,intelligent lovely teen girls that dressed in short plaid skirts,chain belts & dark makeup..they were my 2 best and most positive influence of volunteers and later friends when I was Director of a Peace&Justice Center. The Older board members took one look at them,in beginning and felt not appropriate as volunteers of the organization. After I gave the "Don't Judge" Speech & they saw the work the girls did, I later got them not only nominated to the board of directors, BUT on the Executive Board!! lol..I enjoyed that graetly. As never before & never since have 2 teens been on the board of Directors..Smile my friend..and thanks for this great post& I believe important lesson! You are an amazing person & friend..:-)))))
Hugss, much respect & Love xx
Thank you dear Leah! I am not surprized at all about what you told me!! You are such a special, warm and loving person and I am honored that I am now your "sister friend"!!! It happens to so many of us in our lives and a great lesson learned. I am sure that is part of our learning process....we fall, skin knees, and dust ourselves off hopefully far wiser than when we fell. You and I have so many similar things that have happened in our lives and yet as I can tell, your heart is huge, you love for other's broad and compassion and quest for peace...endless...Love and respect you back....Linda
