Day 102/365

This was a rough week, as evidenced by the fact that 5 days worth of photos are going up in one night. By the time I got up Monday morning, I had a fever, and the beginnings of a really stellar cough. It pretty much went downhill from there.

I'm always more self-conscious when I'm sick, especially with something that induces coughing because I just get so ... aware of me in my environment.

I saw this quote at one point this week and it resonated for me, at least for a moment. The truth is just that-- people are going to judge you. It's what we do as humans, unfortunately. We judge.

I spend enough time judging myself without wasting more time worrying about other people's judgements. At least, that's sort of the space I'd like to clear in my head about it. In truth, I'd like to get to a place where I spend less time judging myself as well... but as with so many things-- that's simply a work in progress.

The point is, aside from ... first impressions, job interviews, those fleeting critical moments when what someone thinks of you can in fact make a difference in your pathway... who cares what someone decides about you? Who cares what judgements they cast on you? Unless someone is willing to know you beyond their snap judgements-- they're not worth worrying about to begin with.
