Why is it people judge you before they know the whole story like in my last discussion?

Because, this is an online community, and we cannot know you personally. If you come on here and put only bits and pieces of personal things about your life on the forum, you can expect others to scrutinize and dissect it and then judge you. This is a community that is all about opinions. So, if you come on here and allow yourself to be an open book to strangers, meaning you discuss private and personal details of your life, then you are asking to be judged. If you do not wish to be judged, then you might have to re-evaluate what types of things you discuss on here, and maybe decide to keep the too personal of things between you and your family and true close friends. Personally, I don't mind what you discuss, but you should be prepared to have constructive criticism given when seen fit. However, the messages do not have to be totally rude, but they will be blunt and opinionated. So, it is something you need to be prepared to handle if you are going to devulge.
