I Get Judged For My Looks

    I Do

    We all still live in a world that judges on looks. It is a shame, but it is what it is. I have a deep past of being called ugly, and it is hard to see myself as anything else. I accept who I am, but in no way do I think I am good looking.

    Because of it, I made the mistake to do the

    same. I would judge everyone whether judged me or not. I just figured they were doing it behind my back or eventually would anyway. One of the biggest cases was where I royally ****** up was thinking that clothes define a person. Specifically, Flat bill caps. You all know what...

    I cut my hair boy-short

    and am a tomboy, so people have either mistaken me for a boy or thought I was a lesbian (though in that case they got me confused with an actual lesbian at school who also dressed tomboyish)

    I posted this on my Facebook.

    "People are always going to point out your flaws; whether it's appearance or personality. Everybody's going to judge you.But I think the best way to get over a flaw is to accept it.Apart from my very obvious flaw, I got told I have no/small breasts. When I was younger, I felt...

    It's sad to say, but we

    as humans judge others and make too many rules around appearance. For example, you can only be a Victoria Secret model if you weigh so much. I was absolutely appalled when a Victoria secret commercial came on and all the models just had this "I know you want me" look on their...

    When I see babies and small children,

    I can't help but smile and wave, because they're just so adorable... But then their parents see me and they look horrified. I mean, come on... I'm the least of your worries when it comes you your kid's safety.

    Judge Me If You Want To!

    I hate people who judge but can't directly say to me. Instead, they just backbite, what a shame. I know, I,m not perfect physically and I have no great deal in that part. But, judging my personality as well as my past, thoughts, words and actions is different. You can't read me...

    I am a person of the gothic persuasion.

    Usually its not a huge deal

    for me. The way i dress is just who i am. Its how i grew up, lately though with my new job i find a lot of people turning there backs on me like I'm a threat. Still waters run deep. I don't let it show on the surface. But below it does stir a bit.
