    It'S A Difficult Thing To Do.

    I am not sure people judge me and I don't know how my story has shaped me, but I do have one. I don't use it as an excuse. In fact it's remarkable.

    I Agree.

    Problem is from my experiences there is SO MUCH that goes into human beings, they are literally complicated life forms. Its narrow mindedness on MY part to solely judge a human being from what I see without ever knowing the person.Its like you can judge based off of what you see...

    We all judge. You can't help it! As soon as you see someone you make assumptions based on how they look or sound or what they're doing. That's human nature.
