This prompt has been stewing inside of me all weekend!! It’s a rule in our house; no electronics in the house on weekends. Yea… it’s killing me!! But I’d rather be a conscious parent and girlfriend than lost In all my electronic devices. Anyway…
From as far back as I can remember, I had never judged a single soul. I always felt as though I didn’t belong… I was different. I believed everyone at their word. If they said they were good people, I bought it, hook, line and sinker. I call it being naïve, others say I was just plain dumb. Regardless, because of the amount of times I’ve been hurt, I NOW have a tendency to judge people and I don’t like it. It’s not fair to that person. They aren’t responsible for my past. They aren’t the ones who caused me to be bitter and angry. However, even though I don’t necessarily like it, I feel safer. It’s not about just me anymore. I’ve got an 11 year old son. I have to protect him. I can’t allow my naivety to get him hurt.
Do I judge? Guilty.
Do I like it? Not one bit.
Have I lost people or never made a connection with people because of this? Almost certainly.
Do I regret it? Sometimes… most times actually. But again, my son is far more important to jeopardize.
Can you let me know if I’m doing this pingback thing right? I’d really appreciate it.
