He asked a question, I gave the answer. Judgement crossed his face.
Me: “You can judge me, go ahead. But if you were as honest with me about your life as I am being with you about mine, I’d have reason for nasty judgemental looks to cross my face, too.”
He looked surprised, ashamed, and nodded.
This, my friends, is my life. I have been where I have been, followed my heart, ignored and trusted my instinct, made big mistakes and great strides. I may have learned lessons and chosen paths that have made things harder, but I have never done anything to intentionally harm or deceive another, and that’s something I can be proud of.
Do the best you can to be your best self, and never let anyone make you feel bad about being you.
