As soon as we start to interact with someone new, we can start to make assumptions, including age, orientation or occupation.
Although, not everyone is quite as they seem. People are nuanced and in some ways incredibly interesting and complicated.
People are also sometimes very surprising, in positive ways for sure.
I try my best to keep my sub conscious in check when meeting new people and be as empathetic and open minded as I can.
There’s too much judgement made by people based on their background or things that are merely circumstantial such as where they come from, or what they look like, as opposed to who they actually are.
It’s better to look up to people as opposed to look down on them.
