Blame the economy, blame bad luck, blame my parents, blame your parents, blame the Internet, blame people who use the Internet.
It’s never lost on me that it was the religious who Jesus had to challenge not to throw stones.
Don’t fucking make judgments about something you know nothing about.
A lot of people who find out about the things I do immediately figure I’m just a pathetic “druggie” with nothing to say that is worth hearing. They talk endless bull shit of “recovery!” They make it sound like some amazing discovery…don’t they know I’m far too busy trying to recover me?
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all.
If you’re struggling to fit me into a box……. Then build a bigger box!
If becoming “religious” has made you more judgmental, rude, harsh, a backbiter, you need to check if you are worshiping God or your ego.
Judging others is too often escapism dressed in the garb of righteous indignation, whereby I dutifully point out in others that which I probably should be pointing out in myself.
Intelligent people, as some say, in their openness, are indeed slow to criticize, but conversely, in their openness to the concerns of others, the genuine are slow to fret about being criticized.
is it trashy
to want something so bad
you go for it
even if it might kill you?
It’s judging that’s trashy.
Bad enough the world looks at us
under a (distorted) microscope.
Like the good Lord says,
we don’t need to
judge each other.
