We hear that it only takes a few seconds for someone to decide whether they like someone else or not. We can always make a good impression. But we’re still all different. Sometimes we’re not always performing or presenting our best self. And we all have different versions of what our best selves are. Instead of writing people off, we should understand and accept people’s flaws, emotions and impressions. We should give people a chance – even more than one, not just a few seconds. Because it’s ok for each of us to both be ourselves or have a bad day. Let’s spend less time judging others. Let’s embrace other people’s differences and work to find respect and rapport with them. Let people be themselves, as much as we want to be ourselves too.
