They say that the first impression is the best impression. But I tend to disagree with that. First impressions aren’t always the best. That’s what I feel. Sometimes, nope scratch that, most of the time, it takes so long to really know a person. Many a time, our first impression about a person isn’t always correct. Over the course of time, as certain masks peel away, their behavior makes us realize the person who they really are… In that case, the first impression might be the best because the impression that we have about them might decrease in value when we get to know them better. Right? That’s what I’ve observed. But then I can’t exactly say that I’m a very good judge of character, but it’s so hard and unfair to base your assessment on first impressions alone. While first impressions may or may not be the best (I’ll leave that open to debate in the comments section!), I think that it’s the last impression that’s closer to reality. And that’s what matters. Because it is my opinion that first impressions may not always be the right one…
This doesn’t apply to people alone. I’ve observed the same with blog posts.. and animals! Sometimes when I’m writing a draft, I feel that particular post will perform very well. But I have been wrong about that. Certain posts about which I didn’t have many expectations initially have performed excellently and went on to become one of my top posts! And I’ve ended up cuddling many dogs/puppies/cats/kittens that growled at me initially. So yes, first impressions aren’t always right (or the best!) 😁

It’s been a while since I posted an actual rambling post on “My Random Ramblings”. For quite a long while, I’d been on a fiction writing marathon that I feared I’d have to change my blog name to tiny tales, six-word stories, and more fiction! 😂 No, that isn’t a bad thing. Don’t get me wrong – I love writing fiction but no blog of mine would be complete and uniquely me if it doesn’t have an element of randomness. 😉😂😁
