We Are All Being Brave - Judgements

We Are All Being Brave - Judgements

Today, a new and inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube 

We are all being brave. We are all fighting our own battles. Whether physically visible or not, we have all thought about packing it in at one time or another. One quote I like to remember is ‘If you are lucky enough to be different, stay that way’. I think it is true, because everybody is offering something different in life.

Everyone has a different attitude, opinion, way of life etc. (the list is countless) so that is why I think it is a poor choice that we judge. Someone could just be having a really bad day and your comments could lower their self-esteem. Do your best not to do that to that person. 

Everyone has issues (the list of issues they could have is endless). I was caught in a tight spot when someone that I know judged someone on the way that person was dressed, and wanted me to pass judgement. I think I mumbled ‘yeah’ or something because I felt it wasn’t my place to judge. That person could have had less than 24 hours to live or something. 

We don’t know everything about everyone’s story so I try to not judge anybody before I meet them because I don’t think it’s fair. They could be the loveliest person ever but just because they are having a hard day you’ll never know. Maybe they’re waiting for someone to make them smile. They may have the most gorgeous smile but if you just keep walking you’ll never know. 

We all have little bits we don’t like about ourselves, bits that we don’t like to amplify. And what if that private something that you don’t like about yourself, was so obvious that you couldn’t hide it? And what if everyone comments on that? Your self-esteem would surely plummet so remember this when you look to judge someone. How would you feel if that was you?

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried. He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation , Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band. Here is a translation of the words
