    If you know them then yes. If not then this is a bit tricky. As I always say See me for who I am not for where I am from. It needs time though. Everything does.

    Great statement that definitely stresses the importance of first impressions. It’s always pivotal to exercise proper judgement especially when someone exposes them-self in good faith.

    This quote in a way tells us not to have pre conceived notions about people. Unfortunately many people find this hard to do.

    It’s not common that people show who they really are. So when they do, believe them the first time.

    Yes right because that might just be what they are truly are . I don’t doubt such character because character is like pregnancy you can’t hide it for long.

    Well said by Maya. Believing them for who they are will actually help the relationship from fading away. Nice quote from Maya Angelou

    First impression I have about a person is always the person traits and I don’t joke with those. So yes, I believe in this quote.
