Just Don’t Judge

In today’s day and time people are constantly judging others and claiming that they are entitled to their own opinions. When all actually most people’s “opinions” are derived from a judgment of a person’s stereotype. For me, I just don’t judge because you are an individual. You can only be you and I am just me.

1) Don’t judge me by my skin color, I am a black and although my actions represent black people, we are not always the same. Being black I can identify with my culture but I will never represent the stereotype. I am just me.

2) Don’t judge me by my sex, I am a woman. I love to cook, clean and bake. I’m feminine, I’m girlie and my friends identify me as type 1. However, I am a boss in corporate America. I can change a flat and move an entire house by myself. I’m not a feminist and I’m not an anti-feminist. I am just me.

3) Don’t judge me by my hair! I am versatile. I can rock it in its natural coils or straighten it bone straight. Neither way defines me because as a neo-soul artist once said, “I am not my hair”. I am just me.

4) Don’t judge me by the way I parent. I do the best I can with what I have. My child may not go to bed on time but we enjoy our time together. I may not make every PTA meeting and school event but I work hard because I love her. My job knows being a mommy is my first priority but the school knows that Mommy has a job. That’s just me.

5) Don’t judge me because I love God and He is my everything. I am a Christian and I believe in the Bible but if you don’t, I still love you because that’s me.

I believe in love. I will not judge you for being different from me. I will not expect you to fit a stereotype that the world has said you must identify with because you and I are individuals. We are unique and we have our own identity.

For me, I constantly remind myself that I am to love others. God did not say, “Make sure you only love those like you!” God challenges us to be more Christlike. So love others, don’t judge them. You can’t possibly know someone based on their “stereotypes” that have been defined by others. We define ourselves and part of my definition is to love!

  1. How boring would things be if we all were the same? I love this post so much! It reinforces exactly what I am trying to teach my children about who they are and to celebrate others’ differences and accept their choices.

  2. This is such a powerful article that I’ve read today. I don’t understand why other people judging other people base on their personalities but I am hoping that someday it will change.

  3. I love this post and I totally agree. Not everyone has to fit the social mold or stereotypes. I feel like we live in a time when the majority of people should understand this, but I guess we’re not quite there yet.

  4. this is such an uplifting post! you’ve inspired my new mantra that ‘I am not defined by anything but me on my accords’ ❤️ thank you so much for sharing!


  5. That is an awesome reminder that we all need to resist the unfortunate human urge to judge our surroundings and the people in it. We are all different, and we all do things differently. If everyone is okay and no laws are being broken, just do you and let them do them.

  6. I love your post. I am the mother of 2 black girls and I can tell you they are so different and I keep telling them, they have their own identities. Keep rocking my friend.
