I know that there are people out there that know and understand that people are flawed. As such, we makemistakes. Sometimes they are not mistakes in and of themselves, but faulty thinking brings about faulty behavior.This not to minimize anyone’s actionsin any given situation, mine included. But only to have someone who mayunderstand that what a person does, isn’t always who they are as a person. I feel like this about myself. Eventhough I have made so many errors, through bad judgement, and even though I still tend, from time to time, tomake the wrong choice, they are not as frequent as in my early years.So, to anyone out there who is willing to take the chance of getting to know someone who is flawed and knowsthey are, but who is always trying toimprove them self, and therefore has no judgements about anyone else,please reach out to me.I thank you in advance for not judging me before getting to know me. Until I hear from you…whomever you mightbe…because I know there aren’t a lot of people out there who think in this way
