Thought for Tuesday, June 20, 2023

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

People know themselves much better than you do.

That's why it's important to stop expecting them to be something other than who they are.

Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou reminds us of the importance of observing someone's actions and words and trusting in their authenticity. Instead of holding onto unrealistic expectations or projecting our desires onto others, she encourages us to listen and pay attention to the signals that reveal someone's true character. By embracing this wisdom, we can develop healthier relationships based on honesty, understanding, and acceptance, ultimately fostering deeper connections with others and avoiding unnecessary disappointments.
