Life's funny...

isn't it? Some of the things I've realized as I've gotten older is many people are intolerant. Intolerant of what you ask? Anything I suppose...on so many levels, change, people, words, et cetera...

One would think...that it would be simple to just blend into the tapestry of life. Some people have noticed that I am very picky about who I am friends with and who I let into my life...on many levels I am a private person. Very few truly know me and those who think they do are merely kidding themselves. I dislike bigots, racists, narrow-minded, small-minded, and judgemental people. Some of the meanings of those adjectives are rather broad aren't they? I suppose as far as intolerance goes...judgemental people is one of the broadest categories for me. One of the things I've always hated is when people judge a person before they truly know them. And when I say judging I am referring to a broader spectrum of something relating to who that person truly is.

Exempli gratia...if you were to meet me and just say hello, could you really decide at that point whether or not I'm a good or dishonest person? Perhaps presentation may lead to a judgement...however, it is funny...the Internet provides a bit of obscurity to who a person truly is, doesn't it? In all honesty, you never really know who's a good person or who's a bad person...and you never really will know unless you meet them. It is easy to tell how a person thinks or handles herself if she allows you to read some of her thoughts (the journal)...

I was going somewhere with this, but I lost my train of thought because my tummy grumbled...I'm hungry...

in my opinion/experiences, yes. this is one matter on which my instincts have never failed me. it's kind of frustrating, actually, because to me, i dont need some type of "proof" other than my intuition, because it's always right. it's more of a sense, so when people question me on a judgement i make, it's like a blind person asking a sighted person how in the world they know the sky is blue. because i'm looking at it, and i can see that it's blue!

you know?
