Only part of the picture

They say it only takes us a few seconds when first meet someone, to form an opinion on them.

This got me thinking about how when we see people on the TV or in photos, even although we can only see a small part or percentage off that person, we jump straight in there and make some very big assumptions about both their physical and their emotional wellbeing.

In turn this reminds me that even although we can be standing right beside someone, able to see them physically, we cannot see the whole of them, so we really have no idea how they are really feeling either physically or emotionally as many of us “put on a public face” so that those around us never really “see” how we are actually feeling.

So don’t go jumping in there making assumptions about those around you, based on what you see/hear, as we never really know what they are feeling do we?
