    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...

    I'm only twenty, but there has been much to

    experience. Here in Marseille a Jewess often meets anti-Semitic vitriol usually from Arabs. There are many destructive vibes in the streets on my way to school.

    Do you know the feeling of wanting to see

    someone suffer??? Wanting to see them laying there with a knife in their heart begging for mercy, begging for you to spare their life, to let them live. Then you have that one last thought " they ruined my life so why let them continue theirs" as you take the knife out of their...

    I'm full of nasty thoughts.

    And sometimes I share what I want to do. What i want to enjoy. That's why I came here in the first one place. I'm OK with you it liking me, not liking my experiences, my desires. Just don't create a stereotype for me.

    i don't believe in judging other people

    for this very reason. you can never really know a person. and it can be hard to understand why people do some of the things they do. i'm not saying i'm not opinionated because i know i sure as hell am. i just don't feel like i need to label anyone for doing something i don't...

    They say before insulting a man,

    you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way when you insult him, you'll be a mile away and you have his shoes.

    because my eyes are black and I'm quiet. They don't see all the hills I have slowly overcome. I've lived through being hit by a car, failed suicide attempts, being an outcast in my own family, and my biggest hill, cancer. Yet people have the nerve to say things about me that are...

    Everyone can't cope with issues in their lives

    properly. I dislike it when someone judges someone by something they did that was led by emotions. We are all different. We get angry, and we do things that others may call insane but the lesson is to don't judge me until you have experienced what I have. Its only fair.

    It is so true. "Never judge a man (or woman)

    until you've walked a mile in there shoes." After that you can judge all you want...afterall, they will be a mile away, and you've got their shoes.
