"When people tell you who they are, believe them." ~ Maya Angelou
The lesson is LISTEN! A leopard doesn't change its spots. Good or bad, people reveal themselves to us in all different ways. Their actions, words, silence, indifference, and deeds tell us everything we need to know about them. Sometimes the message is wonderful, and other times, it is disappointing. Either way, opening your eyes and more importantly, your ears, can save you from wasting time (perhaps years) and energy on the wrong people in your life.
Choose wisely, their story is right in front of you...hear it and believe it. Spend your time and energy on the special people whose stories enhance your own.
Do you agree? Have you had a "leopard" in your life that did change its spots for the better? Tell us about it.
