Don’t Always Judge, Just Get to Know!

Have you ever looked at someone and as soon as you did think you were better than them at only a mere glance? As we read through Flatland I noticed that was how they were normally in their mannerisms. As it continued I thought it was disgusting how they only looked and didn’t even communicate to learn of the person just took them at face point.

As I thought of their extremely prejudicial views I looked back in my own life and saw that as was nearly as bad. I went back to my childhood and thought of how I learned of someone and noticed I always talked to the person by passing judgment. But the older I got I noticed I only took a glimpse on the outside of the person I was talking to and right away thought of them as possible people to communicate with or not.

This actually led me to think of everything in my life. Had I only made friends with people I thought deserved my olive branch of peace or not? I noticed after the amount of denial I hefted and hoarded onto myself that I was just the same as these “Circles” or of “Higher Class” shapes as in the story and again I was disgusted with myself.

Finding this extreme glitch in myself was actually hard to come over. I tried for a week and almost gave up after walking down the streets of Grand Rapids for only five minutes. But after I got over the looks of the people around me I noticed the families and groups of friends that communicated better with each other than I could even with my sister or best of friends. I am actually outrageously disgusted with myself for these what I thought as Red-neck Hik views. Again even that is stereotyping on people I actually know. I lived in Texas for the greater part of my life and still consider those types as automatically inferior to me.

I implore you… no everybody to try and change your own types only looking at the cover but not the inside of everyone around you. Believe me after opening up I noticed how great and emotionally strong the people I see are.
