    I seriously don't like it

    when I am judged because they do not know what i've gone through. I ****** me off, I don't judge you so don't judge me.

    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.

    Teen Mums..

    it really annoys me how teen mums are judged.. how people think that instantly because you are young, and have a baby you are going to be nothing.. and how people think that your not going to be a good mum.. or that youve slept around with a bunch of different guys.. so yes...

    Its both funny and annoying

    that the people who judge me are the ones that know absolutely nothing about me, they have never spoken to me or even know my name, always casting strange looks or making hushed comments while in passing or standing sitting nearby, my appearance does not define who I am or what...

    I'm Happy All The Time Right?

    I'm sick of pretending that I'm always happy. Like I'm always in a good mood. People always say how excellent of a person I am and that judging from the way I treat others, I must have a spectacular life. This isn't the case. I just don't like to show people how I really feel...

    Simple...

    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...

    How can you judge someone you know nothing about

    or even know what they have been through its selfish to think you know about that person from just looking at them. If you judge me or have judged me I would love to know what you have said about me and tell you how wrong you are or have been about me. You go ahead and go...

    No one seems to understand how difficult it is

    to lose 4 pets and a good friend in less than 5 months and not be okay. They all expect me to be the same person I was before it all happened. But I just can't.

    You wanna tell me who I am?

    Try my shoes on see how you like the fit. Walk in them walk down my broken path feel all the pain I've felt everything I've been through. I bet you'd take my shoes off real quick. So don't assume you know me from how I look and act.

    I hate when people judge me.

    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
