Judgement. We are all guilty of it (no matter how hard we try). I am not here to preach to you about judging. I am here to tell you to please, think twice before you do.
Last Saturday night, my husband and I decided to have a last minute date night. As we walked into a local restaurant, I noticed a woman in the corner immediately turn her nose up at me. She was dressed in heels and a dress and I was in leggings and a T-shirt. I watched her lean in and whisper and then turn to her friend and point.
I normally do not care what people think of me. I never really have. However, this time was different. I was in leggings and a T-shirt because none of my clothes fit right now, thanks to PCOS and my fertility meds. I had on no makeup because I didn’t really want to be there. My husband begged me for hours to go so that I would get out of the house and stop thinking about this months failed cycle (depression from infertility is a real thing, guys).
Before you judge, point, and whisper, please remember that you have NO IDEA what is going on in someone else’s life. That girl wearing a T-shirt to dinner may be holding on by a thread. That girl with no makeup on at dinner may have cried it all off on the way here. Please remember this next time you judge someone based on their appearance.
