Third Impressions

We often let our first impression block us from going deeper. We can miss out on wonderful people and places if we rely on only one encounter. Our experiences and memories shape our world and can also limit our perspective if we are not open to second and even third impressions to give us a more accurate view.

First impressions of others or that others have of you can be based on merely one signal that is sent while we are preoccupied, tired or upset about something completely unrelated to the situation. Don’t miss out on new discoveries of people and place – give a second or third look to find the treasure.

  1. So true! If somebody met me for the first time today (scattered, exhausted, and grumpy) and thought this is who I normally was, they’d be missing out on my fun, playful, crazy (in a good way) side. Well said.

  2. first impressions can be given way too much scrutiny,
    I believe it is the lasting impressions that truly matter ….

    thanks for sharing your thoughts on this matter,
    your blog is awesome 🙂

  3. Great advice. Only one impression – of them OR you – gives a one-dimensional idea at a given moment in time. We all deserve multiple chances and very generous judgment.
