Never Judge A Person...

Every person is like a book. Judging people is like judging a book by it's cover. 
When we read, we know the intricacies of that book and then like it, whatever
 the cover may be like. That's why being judgmental is a very narrow 
minded approach of limiting your intellect. Once you turn over
 a new leaf and start to form your own opinion without over
 analyzing situations and people, you'll see the difference...

We are all guilty of this.  We all judge people and I know I am no exception.
Sometimes we just see someone, we don't even know them and already we
 are forming an opinion about them.  Many times it's the wrong opinion.

When we came to Branson, I formed my opinions based on what I saw.  Little by
little I realized how very wrong I was.  The more I got to know the people the more
I realized what a terrible thing it is to judge just based on first impressions.  I will
be the first to say sorry.  I was wrong.  I have met amazing people here with struggles
 and stories that at times seem too incredible to be true, but they really are.

I have learnt in the last 4 months that there is so much to learn.  So much to appreciate
 and to NEVER EVER take anything for granted.  Many in Branson are very poor,
but they have some of the biggest hearts of anyone I have met.  They remind me and
everyone that it is not how much you have, but what you do with what you have.

Many don't have much, but they are the first to share the little they have.  It reminds
me always of my parents.  Long time ago they did not have much, but the little
 they had they shared with everyone.  They have not changed in that way.

They have instilled that to their 5 daughters.  Something I am grateful for.  I want
 to be just like my mom and dad.  Caring and always ready to extend a helping hand.

Next time you meet someone, make sure you know them a little before
starting to judge them.  I will begin by following my own advise as well.

In my experience, I have found that women are more judgmental.  Women are
harsher and more critical towards other women.  Arvid says that he thinks
"women just hate each other, and that most are just jealous of each other."

Just like we believe we deserve the benefit of the doubt so do others.  Remember,
don't try and judge a person because you have no clue as to what they have been through!
I have learnt that judging a person does not define who they are.. it defines who you are

I'd rather be naked in front of a guy than in front of a group of girls. 
Women are judgmental.  Men are just grateful...
