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

    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.
