TOO QUICK TO JUDGE
"Contempt prior to investigation keeps a man in everlasting ignorance."
~ Herbert Spencer ~
We think we know so much- about people, situations, what everything means, and the reason things are the way they are. And we shut the door on so many opportunities by being truculent and locking them out of consideration or possibility before they've even had a chance to breathe air, or to properly speak.
I make sure I understand what's being offered before I accept or decline.
