Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 203 People

    I go to bed 20. They are asleep,

    but I need to wake them up to take their vital signs and check the blood sugar level which I subsequently treated for a hypo. Big guy, robust arms and mean looking face. "Oh no I bet this one will have an attitude" I thought. I suddenly felt really small and timid, I didn't want...

    Another Side Of Angel; Part 1 Of 2

    Author's note: I have never judged another person by their outward appearance since this true story happened to me. I was a Military Policeman at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO in 1974. One of the people who worked in the supply room was a woman called Angel. In the years I was around...

    I make so many assumptions tho,

    I wouldn't call my assumptions judgements as they're hardly negative, but I enjoy doing it so when's get to know them it's like I can see how right or how much they proved me wrong... I thought everyone did this tho because we often play the "first impressions game" and things...

    I Saw But Did I Really See?

    I was in the mood to watch television. Just thought I'd relax and see the strange things associated with watching as this show has been known to show the viewers. A variety of episodes were watched before this one came on about cyber chips under the skin. It showed that...

    Cover ?

    Judge a book by its cover is as stupid as to judge someone by the color of his/her skin, religion, or philosophy. A wise man once said: ' Compare is to judge and judge is compare '. We compare against ourself, our values, our own education. These three aspects are features of our...

    You Can't

    Yes, the outside is what we first see and first impressions mean a lot, but they usually don't say everything about what we can and will see if and when we look further. This applies to people, animals, things, and places.

    The adventure, the story, the joy, the pain, the trust, and the love story does not lay in the cover of the book, but is in each of the pages underneath. :)
