    I've had a really hard life,

    as many has had, I'm not asking for forgiveness for my actions I have taken at that time, as I've been trying to make good on many. But now knowing I'm dealing with ptsd and bipolar as well as a couple of others, I now know where my actions have come from, and am still working...

    Last summer I had a pair of sandals I loved.

    It's rare. They had Velcro, brown and woodsy, sturdy and protective, easy on easy off, a secure walk. Besides I thought they looked decent for their comfort to be had. And a rare find to be very pleased with a shoe. The foot should not know it has a shoe on except awareness in...

    I don't mind people judging me.

    It has never bothered me. I judge people all the for better or for worse. I consider judging a prediction more than a label.

    Although, I would prefer

    that you didn't judge me at all. Everyone is similar in that we all have gone through our own good times and struggles. We don't have to agree with each other but we also don't need to judge.

    Some days you want to find a dark cave and shiver. Some days just need total unconsciousness.

    Before You Judge My Life, My Past, Or My Character...

    If there's anything on this earth

    that annoys me, it's people who judge before they know someone. You have NO IDEA what a person has been through, NO IDEA what has led them to the point in their life that they're at when you meet them; chances are high that there's a solid reason for the way they act, look...

    Don't ever judge anyone

    because you don't know the whole story and even then just accept them for who they are. You may not be able to know what they are going through or who they are but you can understand and empathize to be there for them

    No one has it all figured out, especially not the people who are acting like they do and judging others because of it. Pretending to be something you aren't because you're trying to please a bunch of judgmental hypocrites is not the way to be happy. If what other people thought...

    and others its the same. All of us earn an income of some sort or another, shower, dress, eat, sleep, and do basic life functions. What makes us all different is the way we react to life situations and how we go about our daily life. You cannot judge a person by what he has...

    A conversation that I have had with my children.

    I taught them from an early age to not just accept outward appearances. A person is more than what they look like. They are a sum total of looks, experiences and feelings. No one thing can define a person or their worth.

    I'm not one to be judged and I don't like it. Someone judges me, I tell them to go away or else I do tell someone about it. I've gotten police involved with people at my school in the past, and I've even used some self defence before. And all because people judged me
