I had to revamp this a little bit, because I caught myself, yesterday judging a situation I knew NOTHING about based on very few things I was shown or told. THEN I saw another side. THEN I thought about how it felt when people judged ME on very little information.
So I decided to repost this from November of 2012. A little something to think about...
Here is my post as it stood in 2012:
All of my screw ups were right there, in my face. People talked. People judged. No matter how hard I tried to do the right thing, it was wrong & people sure let me know it.
It was awful.
In reality, I didn't know what to do in "life." I was on auto pilot coasting along. Tripping at every pass. I took examples from other friend's parents, older friends - anyone I thought I could learn from. People still judged.
So much I'd never put in print. Stuff that I'm horrified over and don't have the nerve to come forward with. Stuff I'd rather have buried forever.
Things I'm sure this mask won't cover.
Everyone has things they hide behind the mask. People they'd hide from forever if they could. At least that's what I believe in my world.
Yes, it is true that I was no saint in my old life. The person I used to be is dead and buried. I don't know her anymore - but I do love her & wish that this me were around to guide her. Because this me knows so much more.
So I don't point my finger, because I know - there would be so many more pointing my way.
How many fingers would point your way?
*How would it be for you if someone judged you forever on the worst thing you'd ever done in your life? No matter how long ago it may have been.*
Think about that.
Have a wonderful weekend. Be kind and show love. Especially to that person who may seem unlovable. You don't know who that person really is, was or will be.
Lots of love,
