First Impressions

It’s said that first impressions last.  It’s for this reason that it’s crucial to make a good first impression because that’s what will linger in the minds of people for a long while.  And such can influence how they interact with you moving forward (if at all they even feel comfortable interacting with you after their first encounter!).

It’s unfair to judge a person from just the first interaction you have with him or her.  You don’t know his or her life story; everyone is more than what you just see on the surface if you find the time to get to know them better.

That being said, I think a first impression is a candid, point-in-time snapshot reflective of a person’s character and personality.  If you had to randomly check on someone to see who they really are, then a first impression can give that sneak peek.

I can imagine how stressful it can be if you’re always conscious of what people think of you, especially when it comes to the first impression you make to them.  At the end of the day it’s still more important to be you.  People should see the real version of you; it’s still better to be genuine than fake.  Ultimately people will judge you no matter what you do anyway; what they think of you, right or wrong, is not your concern anymore.  Be who you are and let their first impressions be damned. 🙂
