Day 21 — Someone you judged by their first impression
I suppose I will focus on what I learned from this dreadful mistake. I guess in judging you.. I learned many things.
[I learned] that when someone admits to their mistakes, it is a sign that they have humbled, or are trying to at least.
[I learned] that if someone insists they are trying to change, I should give them a chance. They might surprise me.
[I learned] that people with a bad reputation deserve a fresh start.
[I learned] that some of the best people I have ever met, are those that have once made the biggest of mistakes.
[I learned] that judging a person only leads that person to become disappointed in themselves, and makes everything worse...
[I learned] that everyone is guilty of judging others on occasion, and it is something that I really should work on, and learn from.
[I learned] that making judgements too quickly can result in long-term heartache.
[I learned] just how important it is to let a person show me who they are, and not let everyone else do it for them.
[I learned] that some of the strongest people are the ones who go through the most public ridicule.
[I learned] that there are two sides to every story.
[I learned] to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. There is always time to figure out the entire story.
[I learned] that by choosing to disregard first impressions and judgements, I will be able to meet some fabulous people.
Thank you for teaching me all of this. I'm sorry again for judging you in the first place. I hope you believe me when I say that I quickly realized the kind of person you truly are deep down, and deeply regretted the problems that were caused because of my impulsive judging.
Also. Happy twenty-first birthday to my sister, Jennica! I love you!
