TRUE COLORS - Most often than not, we interact with all sorts of people day-in day-out. Your "friendly" neighbors, ex-classmates, close friends, relatives, co-workers, bosses, associates and even immediate family members come to mind. Each and every one of them possess a distinct personality or character traits. Depending on your physical exposure and time spent with these individuals, it can be quite difficult to instantly see or perceive people's true colors. Now, the question is - how can we determine a person's true personality? Their true color?
To know more of a person's true color, one must be very observant. Don't just ignore people around you. You must stay focused and develop awareness of your surroundings and the people you interact with. In many instances when things are going on smoothly in our lives we tend to ignore things and the people around us. But when we are plagued with personal problems or trials in life, whom can we turn to? Yes, we may have close friends and family members, but who among them will readily lend you a hand and give you the support you need, be it material or emotional. A shoulder to cry on so to speak. Only then can you truly spot the true color of individuals within your circle of friends or acquaintances. In most cases, people tend to shy away from problematic individuals.
A modern philosopher once said, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time". This may mean first impression counts. That person may look respectful and trustworthy but how sure can you be? He can be at first but as time goes by he can also do you wrong or get you into trouble. Like I said earlier, avoid being ignorant. Be observant. Don't be easily swayed by feelings or how handsome that person looks and how charismatic he may be. Always beware! There are many sayings about this type of person -"A wolf in sheep's clothing ". Or, "Never judge a book by its cover". Even the closest of your family members can have such a type of personality. They may shower you with praises and glory while you pamper them with gifts and financial support. But when the going gets rough on you, their true colors begin to show. You now become an ingrate, a good for nothing and useless family member. In other words, you see a person's TRUE COLORS when you are no longer beneficial to them.
That said, here is one inspiring quote I want to share with you,
"IT'S NOT WHAT YOU DO, IT'S HOW YOU DO IT. IT'S NOT WHAT YOU SEE, IT'S HOW YOU LOOK AT IT. IT'S NOT HOW YOUR LIFE IS, IT'S HOW YOU LIVE IT".
Let this be your guiding principle in life for you to project your very best color to your fellowmen. And always remember this,
"A person's TRUE COLORS will always show within time. You may be fooled for the moment, but be patient and see what happens."
