Would you be friends with a nerdy, shy, religious, ugly, depressed girl? Answer honestly. Would you see past the things this person is often judged for?
Yes, it is difficult to realize sometimes that we need to love for soul, and not vessel. Vessel is temporary and just what it says, a shell for the soul, which is in turn immortal, and in most cases like these some of the most beautiful souls too. Maybe she would stop being so depressed if somebody actually looked past those things, for once?
There is no such thing as an ugly girl. Each girl is beautiful in their own way! Never judge a book but it's cover and never judge a book by its storyline. This girl may be depressed for certain reasons and doesn't need judgemental people calling her nerdy or ugly... Be the better person and be a friend, trust me she needs one more than you think.
The first true answer is how do you feel about yourself. Others are attracted to what's in one's heart. One that you may want to be a friend may not be the one who will be a good friend. If you want to find a good friend, look for ones who have the qualities of what YOU think are qualities of a good friend. Then always remember that when you find that one who you are going to exchange trust with, you have to take the traits that you like about that person as well as their faults. If that one accepts the same from you as you accept them, then it doesn't matter if you are a nerd, or shy, or ugly or depressed. Once you form that mutual bond with one another all you see is the heart. When one gets married it is said to form a threefold bond, the husband, wife, and God. If you think about a climbers rope, note how it is braided with three cords, which makes it stronger enough to hold two people in the air, but if you only have two cords then it is easier for it to tear or unravel. The same can be said of a friendship. If you and your friend keep our creator and His principles then your friendship will remain forever strong.
I would. I usually don't judge quickly. I meet the person and get to know them before judging them. I think the world judges by appearance and rumours more than there own personal expierence. Nerds, I think turn out to be very interesting people and wise as well once you get to know them.
