Don’t compare yourself with other people; compare yourself with who you were yesterday. Jordan Peterson

Growing up was a mix of good and bad, the bad was the part I wish I could forget forever.  When someone met me for the first time the comment would be something like this; “gee your tall and so skinny”.  They defined me before I could say a word, spend time with me. Yes, they defined me when they didn’t even know me.

I can still hear the taunts that some kids would make about the others.  Such as; “four eyes”, “humpty dumpty”, “crater face”, and many more.  You see my point, I let people define me instead of me defining myself to them.

Those were the elementary days.  High School wasn’t much better, kids who took sciences were “brainy”, those who had computer classes were “geeks”, others were called “pencil pushers” if they took a lot of math based classes.

It is the same in the workplace people defining others at first glimpse. “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover”, need not apply

I can honestly say that I do my level best not to define someone without getting to know that person.  Not defining them because of looks, level of formal education, work, etc.,

So, dear reader, who defines you, you or the person that meets you for the first time?

    I have started to accept that regardless of what I say or think, people will always judge. I try to laugh it off, the small mindedness of some, the imaginations of others. It can still hurt sometimes, but I’m trying to see this as a learning opportunity for myself. A chance to learn about THEM because really, their judgments are a reflection of themselves, not me, or you 🙂

      I agree Angie that it speaks to as who they are.
