so i had some alone time for the first time in years and i was thinking. now i have tats, piercings, an alternative look in general an di hate it when ppl judge me based off of that...but ive come to realize i do the same thing. i definitely judge ppl that have a "ghetto" "gangster" look. before someone assumes, no i do not mean black men or women, i mean ANYONE who dresses like that and has the overal ghetto attitude. i find it to be a bit insecure cause they use anger and intimidation to get their way (not everyone who dresses like that does just a lot) and i came to realize, i am doing exactly to them what ppl do to me cause of my tats etc. and i really dont like that and now that i realize it, i want to try to not be so judgemental when someone has the "ghetto gangster look" do you find you judge ppl like this sometimes whether you mean it or not?Answer Question

I think we all judge, but not acting on it is the key.Being mindful that you are judging and then getting past that is beautiful! Not telling others what your judgements are is virtuous also. If you still get to know the"ghetto gangster look" person, is your initial judgement hurting them? No.

Ok I just have to get preachy here, I can't resist, but when you judge someone you do not define them, you define yourself. And like I said above, we all judge, but what we do with that judement is what matters most.
Judge no one, not even yourself.
