Pay Attention to Actions

"When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." [Maya Angelou]

More wise words from Angelou: “When a person (shows) you, ‘I’m selfish,’ or ‘I’m mean,’ or ‘I am unkind, or crazy’—believe them. They know themselves much better than you do!” These words serve as a warning to us all about not blindly trusting others lacking integrity or honesty “the first time.” With that being said, look at it this way too: If someone surprises you with their “true colors” in a positive way during a tough situation, don’t turn away. True and kind relationships of any variety are hard to find, and should be treasured.
