    Shouldn't We All?

    I think that when we meet someone for the first time we make a judgement and then when they do something that disagrees with that initial judgement we ignore it and thus build an image in our minds of who that person is.  I believe that this is why a lot of relationships...

    This is exactly why it's so hard for me to find a real friend, and why it's such a shame that the few I've got are scattered across the country. This is also why I don't like having "acquaintances" or casual friends. Unless someone is a kindred spirit, I have a tough...

    Very fine print. You have to be willing to read

    all of it to understand me. Most don't take the time to read they skim over and think they know me but skimming won't do! Read all of it! I can tell if you have. ;-)
