Some have assumed that I might be outgoing or have a bubbly personality before meeting me

We naturally project our own beliefs and assumptions onto someone before meeting them. This person has someone else’s lens and ideas placed around her, similar to the real world. If only we could experience someone’s essence and heart before any judgment is decided. Perhaps then, we would see the truth first, and maybe the world would be kinder and wiser.
