The man underneath the clothes

14 May

Assumptions will hurt you and in the end they will probably kill you. We assume or prejudge people all the time. The man who dresses like a bum, may in fact not be a bum he maybe an eccentric multimillionaire, he maybe Einstein, he maybe a Nobel Peace Prize Winner; until you know the person underneath the clothes you will never really know.

Here at the Cannes Film Festival I am reminded again of this truth. How many potentially groundbreaking relationships do we miss because of the ordinary physical appearance of the person in front of us? Conversely how many groundbreaking relationships do we miss out on because of our own ordinary physical appearance?

Assumptions hurt us, assumptions hurt relationships, assumptions hurt everyone.
