"you can't judge a book by it's cover"
a common saying. an apt saying even.
and yet, we still always continue to try.
why is it so easy to make snap judgments based on appearance? even when we make a concerted conscious effort to avoid such shallowness. even when it's a small, minor judgement. frequently, it's unconscious, and yet somewhere, in the back of your mind there it is.
sometimes it's based on looks, other times on dress, sometimes even just in the way a person moves. and those small things, the things that we perceive, either real or imagined sometimes keep us from opening up and going outside of ourselves to try to make friends. we can be our worst enemies.
i wonder what the world would be like if we were all blind.
