That’s why we have covers in the first place.
Companies invest in the way a book looks, from its colors, the strategically placed testimonials to the popular themes of during the day of its release.
That is why the outward appearance of people matter, from the way they look, their mannerisms to the things they say.
That is why we judge people: To protect ourselves and with that, some of us do it in a way that comes off really ill-willed.
Nonetheless, we judge because it’s a tool to get the most of our own relationships.
To abide by the extreme measure that is never to judge anyone no matter what is too dangerous. That would be like trying to find a good book when they all look the same, dusty, torn and infested with bugs.
If someone displays characteristics of the toxic people you’ve been with, walk away.
If someone reminds you of your past relationships which didn’t work out, then don’t jump into anything just yet.
If someone acts and behaves overwhelmingly bad, there is simply no reason for you to put up with that. Period.
So judge all you like. Be smart about it and ultimately, trust your own gut.
