Why don’t we see everyone’s past?

Elizabeth Goodall, 17

This entry explores the harshness of judgements and the beauty of looking deeper than appearances. It is important to look beyond a persons appearance since we don’t know what a person is going through. I wrote this because as a 17 year old I’m terrified of getting older. I’ve never been scared of dying or grey hair and wrinkles. I’m scared of getting viewed as a mad old lady without people asking how I became that? I’m scared that all of the heart ache I have faced will be for nothing and people will just judge me on what that heart ache has done. People don’t usually ask why a person is unusual, they just see unusualness without the history.
