I get judged a lot by people who I've never even spoken to and people I know too.
But why? Why do I get judged just because I don't do everything the same as you or because 'back in my day we did things this way'.
- I'm a young mum. seriously?! I was 21 when I had Thomas, not exactly that young.
- I got married too early. Yes, may have got married when I was 20 years old but me and my husband have now been together over 8 years and are still going strong. Who are you to judge?
- I'm layabout because I choose not to work so I can look after my children.
- I've 'changed' because I don't go out all the time with my friends. YES!!! Everyone changes. No, it's not because I HAVE to stay at home and run around after my children making sure they are clean, fed, watered, taught things, etc. It's because I choose to do all of those things. I actually want to be there for my children and see every milestone whether big or small.
I think sometimes people forget that we are all different. There is no point judging me on my painting skills as although I think I am pretty damn good, my husband says different. There is also no point judging my parenting skills, I really couldn't give a crap what you assume you know about me and my family but all I know is that I am doing my best and will always put my 2 boys first in whatever situation arises.
Like Albert Einstein said:
'Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,
it will live it's while life believing it is stupid'
Just because you think you are correct, remember there will always be someone in the distance judging the way you do things. How would you feel?
