Judging by Outward Appearances Vs Inner Qualities

 

1289f61“Never judge a book by it’s cover.” This is an oft-quoted phrase coined to remind us that outward appearances can be deceiving. I am sure that there are people who do, but l find that reading the synopsis is a better indication of value. Don’t get me wrong, a good cover can help a lousy book just like a lousy cover can kill a great book. Years ago, I met this girl who always had this mean look in her face, so mean, I was intimidated and judged her to be unfriendly and not a nice person.

Years later, I found out the girl I judged as unfriendly and mean was actually a Christian, kind-hearted, and compassionate towards elderly people. On the other hand, how can we forget that all that shines is not glitter? I have also met people who smile, are nice to your face, but talk bad about you when you are not around to hear. It’s part of the human nature not to be perfect, and that is perfectly fine. I have learned that just because someone does not act or look like we think they should, we have to assume the worst about them. Instead, we should try to find their inner qualities like compassion, truthfulness, tolerance or even love.

When I give it a deeper thought, I realize most of us ignore the importance of these qualities because we don’t take our time to build valuable relationships and discover both positive and negative emotions we all posses within each other. In order to love and learn from others, we have to love ourselves, then we’ll have the ability to see one another’s soul and see beyond the physical body.

Lastly, compassion, tolerance, and love towards each other is an essecial part of the process. Love is what will make our life complete and will create strong bonds between family and friends. If we could only practice this qualities within us, chances are, we’ll have a better world and we’ll be known as exceptional human beings wherever we go. Life is not perfect, but we can make it perfect and be happy if we decide it.

Regardless of our “bad experiences” getting married is every woman’s dream. In spite of repeating in our heads that marriage no longer exists,  we still dream about marrying a special someone. Today, most girls say there are no men like back in the days; those who romantically conquered women to make them their wives. However, despite all these thoughts we all want to experience that special day, the day we wear that beautiful wedding gown that will make us look like a princess beside our prince. Today I want to say that if you are one of those lucky girls about to realize your dream, it’s time to start thinking about that fabulous wedding dress. Getting the right dress is quite challenging because you will wear it only once, this is your dream, to be a princess for a day.
