The story behind this picture could unveil so much more than the eye can see.

Everyone judges. Whether or not everyone admits to it or not is a completely different story, but everyone judges. The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”, is true, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, or a person by their appearance, or anything by the way it looks. But we do it. Why? Because looks matter. As shallow as that may sound it’s true. Why do you think Sam I Am didn’t like green eggs ham. It is also true that looks can be deceiving. Everything is not always what it seems, in fact it rarely is. Judging can be important, in the right instances. Don’t judge someone before you get to know them, or at all for that matter because trust me, you are in absolutely no position to judge anyone. Besides, I don’t think you would like it very much if someone were judging you that didn’t even know you. If the world lived by this and actually did it, then this problem would be solved, but we don’t so it’s not. The truth is, someone is always judging you. As humans we’re constantly being watched and constantly being judged, especially as teenagers. So don’t fall into the traps of this judgmental world because, once you fall in, it’s hard to get out.
