Some People Collect Things, I Collect People.
Like my friends or not, you can't say they're not entertaining. I don't judge people as much by their behavior as I do by their heart. And sometimes you have to get to know people before you know their good heart. And sometimes you have to get to know people before you realize their true heart, and sometimes it's not what you expected, and sometimes its not so good.
I find that when it comes to people, I either like them more the more I get to know them or less the more I get to know them. I have found this to be very true on this Housewife journey. I think as it plays out over the next few episodes, you will be surprised to see how all the relationships play out.
As for me, even though I heard numerous things being said about me by people that don't know me and don't care to get to know me, I tried overlooking most of it. I think it's fair to say, if I think someone has a good heart, I am pretty forgiving in regard to their speaking before thinking. Or speaking out of ignorance, or speaking to try to be relevant. It's when their meanness is calculated and bitter that I don't forgive or not forgive, I just ignore and don't engage.
