Stanford: Before I tell you, you have to promise not to judge.
Carrie: Do I judge?
Stanford: We all judge. That’s our hobby. Some people do arts and crafts; we judge.
We’ve all been guilty of it: judging. It’s human nature. Just like it’s humanÂ nature to compare ourselves to others. I read a post over on Girl Meets Health about her struggle with thyroid disease, and it made me think.
One of my good friends also has thyroid disease. She’s always been thin, and she’s always maintained a healthy lifestyle. In college, she lost some weight, and was very thin. I assumed there was something wrong, but never asked for fear of insulting my friend if there wasn’t anything wrong or being told to mind my own business. I later found out she had thyroid problems and that’s why (like Gracie), she’d lost a lot of weight.
If you just met me, you’d probably assume that I’d always been not overweight and always been healthy and was one of “those girls” that picked away at her salad. You wouldn’t know that I had been overweight and just lost a ton of weight.
Just a reminder that there’s always more than meets the eye. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes before you judge them.
