Live and let live. Live your life the way you wish to and let others be who they want as well. Never judge a person by their cover.

In everyday life, people judge each other tremendously. They cut down the way they look, their personality, the way the talk, or who they hang out with, etc. None of this matters. People judge too quickly without even knowing what is going on with that person. Never judge at first glance, take time to learn and meet that person because you never know what they could be dealing with, or you could find something that you two have in common.

Over the summer I volunteered with a non-profit organization, Girl Talk: Project Inside Out. It was a camp for middle school girls to help them build self confidence and love who they are because everyone is very special in their own ways. After working with this organization for just one week my whole life changed. I learned how wonderful and talented each individual is. Everyone has a special talent or mark that makes them who they are, and this mark needs to be able to be heard and loved, not judged.

In life there will be times when people judge you for no reason, but always remember to look past that because we are all individuals and others may not understand where we come from. Remember to live and let live and never be the one to judge.

  1. You’re an inspiration, Rachel. Makes me think of Mister Rogers telling children that there is no one else like them in the whole world, and to remember that in life.
