Give It Another Try

First impressions are important, but they only go so deep.  You can’t really know if you’ll like a person just by talking to them one time; you think you can, but in reality, you just can’t.  You need to talk to them a second time at least.

The same goes with food, movies, music, etc.

I have only come to realize this fact in a few different scenarios in my life.  A few being with food for sure, although that can be explained by the fact that I’m older and have a better taste for foods I didn’t like as a child, including broccoli, green beans, cucumbers… most vegetables actually.

Except celery, I still hate that.

It’s like the saying, “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.”

Well, you can’t really judge a book, or movie, by the first time you read/watch it.  Well, okay, maybe with books you can because of the 50-page rule.  Then again, I’ve also gone back to read a book or two that I gave up on and ended up enjoying it.  So the same applies to people, relationships, food, anything really.

You should really give it a second chance.
