I rarely shout from a soapbox, but certain things deserve to be said because, quite honestly, they’re not said enough.
Judgment is a dangerous game. We base our criticisms on emotions, beliefs, traditions, fears, insecurities, etc., and more often than not, we’re blinded by those same criteria.
I’ve had another unfortunate encounter with someone who condemned his/her fellow human beings for being ugly, being fat, being less than perfect.
Are you truly better than someone else because you were born with what the world considers “good looks”? Are you that simple-minded, that naive, that superficial to think you had something to do with it? Grow up.
You believe you’re setting yourself apart by pointing out other’s flaws, and you absolutely are. You’ve made yourself look like a fool because you’ve wasted your valuable time degrading others and plastering that BIGOT sign across your forehead.
When you judge, I don’t have to.
We’re all the same, all beautiful in our own ways, and I pity you. You’ll spend your life watching your back because you’ve burned so many bridges, and watching your front because you haven’t the slightest idea who you are.
I should be thankful, in a way. People like you give me the strength to change the world. I may not be beautiful. I may not be skinny. I may not be brilliant. But I can write, and through writing, I’ll give a voice to all the people being judged.
We’re louder than your hate.
