Isn't this the craziest thing to deal with? We are surrounded by people that are so judgemental that you don't really know which one is which. In short, you can't do right, it's easy to get lost and hurt by these words, there's not much of an option sometimes. You're going to be judged no matter what you do. So, you know what? Just do your thing, they can judge you all they want. Be strong and courageous. You are in charge of your life, whatever your troubles, or achievements, it's yours. Be your own best, your own worst, it's your life. Live it!
