The preconceived idea

The preconceived ideas that you create based simply on yourself and your past.

With a look, you assume.

You find your previous knowledge of a person who looked like that, and then you apply it to this new one with zero thought about how you’re only just meeting them.

How you’re only seeing one dimension of them.

How you’ve dismissed their previous years.

How you’ve just assumed.

You’ve assumed – by the way they look and act – that they must be like the people who you knew before.

So you place them into a category, one which fits them because of your prior thoughts and judgements. You give them a label, one that will most likely stay.

What a waste.
