I’m not sure if you’re quite like me, but one thing that I typically enjoy doing, is figuring people out! Not in a negative connotation, but an overall picture that gives me a sense as to who they are, in the most positive fashion of course.
I like people, they fascinate me and I enjoy hearing of their journeys. Of course, there are those times, where I may get a read on an individual that doesn’t always feel so positive. However, when that is the case, I know that there is always a story behind it.
In the midst of all this, figuring and understanding people, there are those amazing, rare times, where someone just down right surprises me. Frankly, I love when that happens. I love when I think I have someone figured out and they turn out to be far better then what I was expecting.
When someone shows me that they have far more depth, then what I’ve pictured, or a side to their humor that just comes out of left field, well I’m delighted. That’s the phenomenal thing about mankind, we’re all so different and intrinsic, that it could take a lifetime to truly get to know one another.
Let me encourage you that when you’re out dating, that you open up your ideas of others, they may just be far better then the box you’ve put them in. If you’re in a relationship, let me clue you in. Despite how long you’ve been with the person, there’s still far more to explore to them, if you’ll let them be and not try to tie them down to your small opinion of them.
People, we’re amazing creatures, with endless possibilities to the vastness that we all truly possess. Every time you think you’ve got someone completely figured out, just remember that we only use 10% of our brains. So in actuality, you’re only witnessing 10% of their potential. Chew on that!
Open yourself up and allow yourself to be blown away, because sometimes… People Will Surprise You!
