Sometimes we don't know what motivates a person to act the way they do, but this is for sure: there's always a reason behind it. Instead of quickly jumping to judge and categorize another by the few things you can see on the outside of someone, remember that sometimes other people don't understand us when we know we have really good reasons to be the way we are. Sometimes people don't mean to be rude, they might be going through a difficult time in their lives. Sometimes people don't mean to be defensive, but it is important for them to uphold themselves strongly at a time when they feel attacked. There are infinite motives and infinite expressions. It is good to give the other the chance to explain, and yourself the chance to see beyond the little things you might perceive.
