“You can’t judge a book by its cover.”
People go through incredibly rough times in their lives but you would never be able to tell unless they told you. Yesterday I had a conversation with a colleague and as we were sitting in the car, she began to open up to me. She was telling me about her life, and I was amazed how much she has already gone through at such a young age. I honestly would not have expect that to come from her because she’s a happy-go-lucky kind of girl. Because she went through some significant trauma that I could never imagine, it’s very surprising to me that those difficulties from her previous years seem not to affect her now. My perspective of her changed drastically, and I admire her for her strength.
