    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...

    I dislike people who judge others on their own

    merit system. Until you have been in someone else's shoes you need to be quiet. If you do not have something good to say about someone then shut up. By the way, I have seen some people at EP comment negatively about teen moms. Regardless of the circumstances, she is entitled...

    Stop saying, "...you know what you should do.

    .", when you have never been through what I have. You have no clue the pain ive endured, and you will never know what to do unless you have been through it yourself. I only need someone to talk to, some to be there and someone to listen. You dont have to solve me problems...

    Judgemental .. narrow minded .

    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.

    Ok before you start judging me,

    I want you to take a walk in my shoes. Most of you have no idea how much s**t I've been through, so don't go judging me because of my scars, or because of what I post. If you were to take a walk in my shoes, you wouldn't be judging me.

    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...
