So, I'm thinking a lot about judgements today.
And how easy they are to make.
We make judgements all the time, on everything.
People make judgements about me all the time, apparently.
Inaccurate ones at that.
And I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that there are people out there who think that they know me well enough to make a condescending judgement about me.
It's really bothering me and I wish it wouldn't.
And though I am not a woman of few words, I will try to keep this lesson short:
People are going to judge you in such a way that it fits their needs. They need you to fit a certain mold in their own world to better enhance their own self-worth. These kinds of people, well, you shouldn't bother trying to change their minds. These are the kinds of people that you don't need to have in your life. These are not the type of people worth sticking with.
And though it's hard to keep quiet, the best thing to do is to just let it go.
The people that matter the most are the ones that allow you to expand out of their original perceptions of you. They allow themselves to really get to know you, to a point where you're not just a person that exists to fit their purposes. I have plenty of these people in my life, so I'm not going to worry about one person who thinks that I'm somehow below them.
