Some of you are on my FB and this is related to that update.
Have you ever been judged for how you look? Can you share your experience? Only if you feel comfortable of course :) I thought this was fitting for our beauty forum.
I had a mom at my son's school who is ALWAYS trying to hold/pick up my daughter Letty who is 3. Letty can't stand her for some unknown reason. That's just how kids are. Yesterday this mom tries to give Letty a hug, Letty yells "no thank you" then the mom looks at me, laughs and says:
"Why is your daughter scared of me?! Her mom has a shaved head and spiderwebs tattooed on her hands"
I was TOTALLY caught off guard....I have never had anyone judge me for my tattoos, not to my face at least. I ended up making a awkward laugh noise and walking away.
I was really upset for a while. I had time to meditate last night, think about the situation and let go of my anger. It makes my heart very sad that people judge others for how they look, I know my son is going to have to face a lot of people like this woman in his future due to the fact he is disabled. I learned a lot from this experience and I'm now even more determined to teach my children that every single person in this world deserves love and respect. I'm proud to be "different" and I will continue to be true to myself and treat others the way I deserve to be treated <3
I'd love to hear your opinions/stories.
