    Taking The Time ...

    I try to understand everybody, even when they are different from me ... i try to understand those different from me more actually because i am a curious person and because i think it is always interesting to learn ... even if it is about somebody else. Some people have different...

    Save The Judging For Wet T - Shirt Contests!

    Before I ever virtually stepped foot on EP soil and claimed Mt. Chronimax as my own, I was telling people I would always be willing to trade just one ounce of understanding for tons of forgiveness. I don't have to forgive my dad for breaking my collarbone twice, nose once and so...

    I think it's really quite sad that today there are so many ignorant people who choose to judge people rather than get to know and understand them. IGNORANCE. I hate it. Each one of us are so different...yet so similar. Some introverted, some extroverted, some weird...

    I just got back from a family vacation.

    My husband, children, mother in law, father in law and sister in law were all there. It was nice overall, but after spending that much time with the in laws, I am very grateful to be home!! I try so hard to be respectful and nice to them, but I find them so horribly unpleasant...

    I always try and understand people,

    and I'm not judgemental at least I have always made a conscious effort not to be. If you want a chit chat and I'm free I will happily talk to you :) I've been through a lot ( like many of us) so will do my best to try and understand you and were you are in your life :) xo

    Understand People

    Many people judge others before knowing what the person have been through.  It is easier judging but wouldn't it be nicer trying to understand before going to the extremes and judge?  If people wouldn't judge, there would be more compassion, love and...

    And Sometimes I Do!

    I have a small talent of understanding people. It's a small talent, because I don't understand everyone and not all the time. But, when I do, it's great! Understanding a person, means I am better able to be their friend. That's why it gets so frustrating, when I can't understand...

    People don’t understand.

    That’s what I use to tell myself everyday. Maybe it was true. I fought and cried and yelled and it wasn’t much use in the end. My mother would hold me and ask me what was wrong. I would tell her that there was a monster inside of me. Some days it would stay quiet and...

    It's better than assuming

    and getting even more mad at each other. It's funny to think some people would rather ignore the other person and let it get worse than just solve it right then and there.

    I do my best to understand rather than judge because of the fact that judgements are so useless anyways. Even if you judge a person, what is it that you really KNOW about them? Nothing. My mother always tells me that everyone does the best they can with what they know, or were...

    I am not the "popular girl" I am the girl

    who sits alone in class, who gets picked last in PE and I hate the way I look.. A couple of weeks ago there was a new girl and she saw me sitting alone at lunch and went over to talk to me :) so I don't judge people I never have because I know how it feels to be judged for what...

    Nobody never has nothing to learn from somebody

    else. Man's number one fear is the unknown. We also don't like being wrong, so whenever we meet somebody that believes something different, we judge them and put them below us.
