Funny how first impressions are the instigators of someone’s opinion. Instead of formalities of shaking ones hand, so to speak, there are also other nuances on how one would or should relate to other people. Whether it be by trying to make eye contact, making a smile, or even saying a kind “hello”…no matter the transaction, it is nice to see if this quick human interaction can make it or break it into the transition of reception.
According to Wikipedia the first impressions individuals give to others could greatly influence how they are treated and viewed in many contexts of everyday life. First impressions are based on a wide range of characteristics: age, race, culture, language, gender, physical appearance, accent, posture, voice, number of people present, and time allowed to process.
I am proud to say I am Canadian, North American born with Asian – Filipino Heritage. I could even microscopically narrow down the ancestry to other ethnicities, but why should that matter? All I believe is in how you treat people, and the common respect and acceptance of being with one another. But by being in the “middle” is like being an outsider nowadays. Instead of choosing sides, why can’t we be loving to one another and do what is right to fit in. Why is doing the right thing keeping us from the in crowd? Middle People- MPs (non political or political), please let me know your thoughts.
