My Soapbox

Saw this picture the other day, and it sums up exactly how I have been feeling the last month and a half.  I do try to stay off my soapbox.  I mean that really preachy soap box, but I can't take it anymore.  I'm not sure what good it does, because I think I have 2 readers (and it doesn't apply to those 2).  But, be warned that I'm officially "stepping up on my box".

Please don't tell me what I should and shouldn't feel.  Unless you have walked in my shoes and have the exact circumstances (and no one has), don't judge me.  Yes I feel things that I shouldn't feel.  Yes things hurt my feelings that shouldn't.  I'm not perfect, and to my knowledge I never claimed to be.

If you have never had children, please don't criticize me and tell me what I should have or shouldn't have done with mine.  I will be the first to admit that I sucked (excuse me for that word Judy) at parenting.  But one thing no one can fault me for is that I loved and still love my children more than anything.  I have great children who love the Lord!  And, just because you have raised dogs doesn't make you an expert on children.  Just saying...

How I spend my money is no one's business.  I hate that you make me feel guilty when I buy something. Yes, I am in debt and should never spend another cent or go anywhere, but I have to live a little.  A large portion of my debt is medical bills and other circumstances that you know nothing about.

Ok, I'm done, and stepping down from my box!  Most admit that I feel a few pounds lighter right now!


  1. People! They drive me crazy. I drive me crazy. We all need to stop judging others and concentrate on living in God's grace. Nope, I ain't got it all figured out either. Love ya, Julie!

  2. Love this and I love you! Audrey
