Randomness

Life’s funny sometimes. Earlier today, someone I thought was a nice person acted like a complete jerk and screwed over two people in the process (one of them being me). And then, this evening, someone that I barely know at all (but who seemed like a jerk on first impression) did something extremely generous and unselfish, and gave me something very valuable for no reason at all and asked nothing in return.

Karmic payback? Random chance? Who knows. We humans are great at pattern recognition, and we can see patterns where there aren’t any.

Either way, one thing is for sure. Today was a reminder to me — to judge people on what they do more than what they say.
