You Better Believe It!

“When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.” ~ Maya Angelou

How many times has someone you’ve known done something totally out of character, but you just blew it off like it was nothing? How many times have you dated someone who showed you exactly what type of person they were, but you thought you can change them?

Although, this quote bears a lot of truth, it is hard for some of us to take something out of the norm that someone says or do too seriously; especially when you think you really know the person. I think we know deep down when things just don’t seem right, or we should take heed to what the person has told us, but for some strange reason we put these blinders on to prevent ourselves from really seeing the truth. When someone shows us their true character we sure better believe that is who they are.

It doesn’t take long for someone to actually show you who they really are. You may trigger something within them to make it come out, or it may come out by accident. Either way it will come out and when it does, you must run for the hills. Especially, if there is violence involved. I understand if you love them you may feel a little reluctant in ending the relationship or getting away, but it would be in your best interest to do so.

They may say something that may seem a little off. They may do something out of the norm that may make you question their behavior. There are so many ways one can show you who they really are and when they do they blow your mind. How many times have you known someone and they did something or said something and you may have said, “That is not like them to do or say that”, well, they did and you better be taking notes.

One may say I am too skeptical and it could be true. However, at the same time I try to give everyone a chance, but fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on you…

So, the next time someone decides for the first time to actually show you who they really are…you better believe it!
