Judgements, assumptions. We all make them.
It’s part of being human but maybe we need to stop and think before we make an assumption of someone before knowing them or the full facts.
I know I have had assumptions made about me. I have been told I look “Bitchy”, “Unapproachable”
I was even told recently that i had not been accepted on to a counselling course due to my “vulnerabilities” All they knew about me that could possible have registered as “vulnerable” in their minds was the fact that I have bipolar disorder. Regardless of telling them all the awareness work I do etc etc I was deemed “vulnerable” – That is an assumption based on not a lot of information (Irony was part of the interview was talking about how counsellors shouldn’t make assumptions)
We all do it, it’s part of being human but I think It’s important to try to not make snap judgements about people and situations until we have learned the full facts.
As they say – You can’t judge a book by its cover!
This vlog is me talking about this and why you really can’t judge someone before knowing them first.
