N°3 of 20: On Giving Strangers a Fair Chance

3.  GIVE PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW A FAIR CHANCE.

When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. 

Everyone has gone through something that has changed them, and forced them to grow.  Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours. 

We meet no ordinary people in our lives. 

If you give them a chance, everyone has something amazing to offer.  So appreciate the possibility of new relationships as you naturally let go of old ones that no longer work

Trust your judgment. 

Embrace new relationships, knowing that you are entering into unfamiliar territory. 

Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to meet someone that might just change your life forever.
