Don't judge people on what they are wearing on top. What do say if people always judge you because of your image? What will you do if people have bad perception on you?

humans are just humans. most people judge others . some have nothing nice to say about people as they feel they are the best. there is yet another group of nice people who are not judgemental, very few i have met. people like to jump to conclusion. over here when one is nicely or smartly dressed and you walk to the cosmetics counters, you get instant smiles and offers to help you. the same goes for departmental stores or boutiques. if you are plainly dressed, the salespersons are not bothered. these are some of the attitudes here but i must stressed that not all sales people are like that. i have grown up and i am not bothered by what others think of me. what i think of myself and what i do is important. i do not offend people unnecessary or hurt others, i am fine. thus neatteo, be yourself and be the best you can be in whatever you want to do that is good and healthy.

You response well about this. I just like the way you share it. Lots of people do judging but they are not suppose to jump to conclusion. Besides there is also people who tell others what they conclude about me and it affects my good name. And some of them is just like to label people.

When I was pregnant, I was huge. I would constantly see people staring but nobody every said anything to me. Towards the end of my pregnancy when i was at the peak of my fatness, I overhead somebody say "whoah look at that girl, she looks like she's going to pop!". Let me tell you it got me very angry because of course I was huge. I was pregnant. It also didn't sound like she was saying it sympathetically. I agree with you that we should not judge books by their cover, but sometimes how else would you know what's in them without asking. For example, imagine you are in a dark cramped dirty alley and you see a tall big guy running towards you with a black trench coat and bloody hands. The first thing you would do is run the other way. For all you know however, he needs your help and isn't planning on hurting you. So you see in some ways, judging a book by it's cover is a good thing. If somebody has a bad perception of me, that's just because there is obviously something about whatever impression I just made on them that's put them in that position. Reasonably, it isn't really my problem unless they make it so.

Thanks for your response. About your example, of course I will run because I scared. Maybe we can judge but it depends on situation right?

Yes we can judge anything with just front appearance. Not just a book with cover also people with just haw they look? Good covers just tempt us to buy the book.

But for me is not good enough to judge just on the surface. To know better is just be a friend of mine and you will know who I am... Do you agree with this?

I changed a lot these years, so if it happens to me now, I would say I don't care and I would live happily no matter what other people think of me or judge me. When I was younger, I was so nervous about how people think of me, that really hurts my feeling, no matter how well I tried to show people, there's still guys like to make nasty remarks about others behind my back. I am not alone, as I finally found out those nasty people like to do dirty tracks on others, so just ignore them.

I am a bit fat. When I was younger I used to dress up a bit feminine. But I was not comfortable with it. People always look at me and stare like there was ugly. And now I dress up boyish or sporty because I comfortable with it. And people still look at me and talk my back. But now, I really don't care about it. As long as I feel comfort and I didn't interrupt their life.

Well actually thats what people do. I dont mean in my life, in general. Its easier to follow an "image" , that knowing (at least to try to know) someone.

Thanks for your response. If you say to know someone is based on their image, i agree with that. Just I do not agree with some people. They do not know us and judge us from image and tell everyone about us what they see from the surface.

I hate when people start to judge me for my appearance. It really annoy me a lot! They should try to see things differently and think in a different ways because appearance did not say anything about your inside. :)

just keep doing what you do best and dont worry what others have to say after all it's just words and for all the haters.....all they do is make you more famous and they just probably want to be just like you.
