My friends usually laugh at me in class, and I'm pretty sure that when they're whispering in class, they're talking about my clothes. I buy second hand clothes because my family can't afford to buy new ones.

I'm fat. I just don't need others to tell me that, and now I'm anorexic.

Sometimes when I eat, I get takeout so people won't think that the food that I order is all for me.


Dude. I feel that all of these have to deal with shame and judgement. With these responses that I have received, it's as if people are afraid of being what and who they are. I can totally feel what these people are going through because I know what it is to be forced to be someone you are not. There is no one more despicable and hateful than someone who forces people to be something that they are not. The hate and oppression emanating from these people are usually so strong that I turn my face away in disgust when they talk. I don't care what group or kind of person you hate, I don't tolerate that. Once I am self-dependent, I will show everyone who oppressed me what it is to be out of the loop. But I have to say, I hate people who hate people. Whatever the reason, there's no excuse.

You want to hate? Don't hate in front of me or I'll be the worst ass towards you.

And that's my thing of the day.

  1. It's just too bad... it's such a waste of time--the games. Think of how much we'd get done and how much more productive our lives would be if we could cut out all the stupidity. Breaks my heart. We all just need to love and support each other.

  2. I can relate to some of those things. In those things though is the chance for people to better themselves, and change their lives for the better. I don't like people who hate but if you know there is something wrong about you, and you can see it as wrong, then you can change it.

  3. Interactions with people get easier the older you get. Other stuff gets more difficult, but the people thing is easier to manage. Maybe it's because you can choose where to work and live and who you want to spend your time with. And you reach the point where the opinion of negative people doesn't matter.

  4. Anyone that laughs at someone b/c they aren't wearing the right clothes is not to be considered a friend.

  5. I love shopping for clothes in thrift stores. Don't feel bad about that.

  6. "Sticks and stones" If that were only true. My kids are in elementary school and it shocks me each time they tell me someone said something (that seems so silly to me) and hurt their feelings. I take it seriously. Words can really hurt, no matter how silly they seem to others.

    1. It is so important to like people for who they are, and not judge them about anything else. There is an old expression that still holds true today, "If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, then don't say anything."

  9. I'll never understand why people feel the need to comment on what other people eat. Really. It's none of their business. Just sayin'...

  10. Despising certain ideologies or behaviors that are detrimental to individuals or society in general can make sense, but to directly hate any individual no matter what the reason is wrong. Even the worst person in the world has some positive light within that we can identify with and might be the redeeming quality that could potentially defeat the evil that rules that bad person.

  11. It is terribly unfortunate, but true that we judge people by how they look. Wish it were otherwise.

  14. Judgemental people are bad news, no matter the age. I stay clear off them. As for the second-hand stores, you can find some gems in those, especially vintage stuff. So ignore those who giggle about your shopping choices :-)

  15. People need encouragement and hope, not hate.

  16. Excellent post, Gina! People need to be reassured and offered hope and understanding, not ridicule and hate.

  17. Hi dear, thanks for your visit, this is such a good topic an very well thought out, sadly its an occurrence that happens on every corner of the earth, I wish there were less judgment and more tolerance.

  18. It's so hard to understand people who waste their energy judging others in a negative way. How would those doing the judging feel if someone judged them in the same harsh way?

  19. There is too much hate and not enough generosity of spirit and understanding. It's sad.

  22. Hate is too destructive to tolerate.

  23. Hate always puts a cloud in front of the sun.

  24. I seem to find humanity to be filled with sadness and despair, but these feelings about ourselves seem to more radical in an age in which peers are more often judged at. We blame more and more of ourselves for not being able to meet society's expectations, which are increasing higher and higher as economic and social pressures pile up on our conscience and unconscious. I just hope that people will understand that others just want to be able to fit into society and eliminate those who don't. However, I encourage people to stand away from the norms and an individual that can fight against peer pressure.
