We have heard that first impression is the last impression and I firmly disagree with this statement. No it’s not the last, it’s just the first and you can always change yourself in other’s eyes by being observant, by looking closely and tuning your behavior with them. This is plain people skill and I guess one needs to have a mastery over this in the present scenario. But at the same time people good at interpersonal skills know when to hold their ground and be the real them that they are.
This boy, I can’t say how bad an impression he had on me at first and how desperately I wanted to avoid him. I just couldn’t stand him but slowly when we grew closer and became friends that I told him how I actually felt about him at first. And what he said in return still rings in my ears. He said, “If you think this -the one sitting with you- is who I am or that -the one you thought I was at first- is who I am, then keep one thing in mind that people with excellent people skills will always stay out of your understanding. And in order to be able to understand them you need to have a chameleon soul.”
I don’t think I have a chameleon soul. And I sometimes feel how easy will life be if only I had one. I could just mould myself in any shape and be whoever one wanted me to be at whatever situation. I mean what’s more powerful than being who you truly are and also everything else at the same time
