I stumbled across this quote a few weeks ago and it really struck me:
While this quote doesn't currently apply to anything that is currently going on...it is something that I have experienced in the past- both personally and professionally. We have all been in situations where we weren't "good enough" or people didn't like us based on snap judgements, and then they stick to their judgements instead of getting to know us.
I am fully aware that there are people who don't like me, for whatever reason. I am also aware that the majority of those people have no idea who I really am.
*shrug* Their loss.
