    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 really see no point in judging someone else

    without knowing their story. When I see someone who stands out from the crowd or catches my eye, I find them unique actually. How will it benefit you in anyway by pointing out something different about another individual? That's why when people judge me or try to pick out my...

    I Used To Do This All The Time

    When I was in high school, I judged other people all the time. Now that I have more life experience, I realize how wrong I was. People always judge me without bothering to find out what I've been through. "You shouldn't have quit your job at Wendy's." It was giving me panic...

    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...

    Everyone has their reasons

    for the things they do and we are all shaped by out experiences. It would be too easy to assume I know why people are the way they are and criticise their choices, but it's something I try to avoid. I try to remember that I can't make my mind up about a person until I understand...
