How To Avoid Judgement And Live Hater-Free

I think we've all experienced that moment (or if you're like me, those moments) when we feel like all the pairs of eyes looking at us are full of judgement and criticism. You feel like they're calculating your every movement, and when the owner of those eyes turns their head and bends to whisper in their neighbor's ear, it's like you know what exactly they're saying and what they're doing.

They're judging you.

And it makes you feel fragile. Hated. Unloved. Vulnerable. The opinions you didn't hear shouldn't matter, but because you didn't hear it your brain conjures up the worst possible scenarios that can sometimes torture you through the night.

I've always had trouble with judgement and have wanted to avoid it for quite some time, so I decided to share with you guys my fool-proof way of dealing with it.

Here are three ways to avoid judgement and live "hater-free".

1. Live under a rock.

If you don't put yourself out there, then there's nothing for people to judge. Of course, that does mean you can't do much, so you better get used to the hermit lifestyle...

2. Don't do anything worthwhile.

Want to publish a book, but you're afraid of what people will think? Don't do it. Want to share your artwork with your friends, but you're afraid of what they'll say? Don't do it. Want to go to a party, but you have nothing to wear? Don't go. Whatever you want to do don't do it. It will save you a lot of hassle in the long run.

3. Don't be worth remembering.

Blend in with the crowd. Those colorful socks you love to wear - bury them in your drawer. Your lip ring, nose piercings, heavy eyeliner and five inch heels - toss them in the trash. That Mohawk you paid fifty bucks for - chop it off. Whatever it is that makes you stand out, change it. Right now.


As you can see from the points above, you have to do ridiculous things in order to avoid being "judged". But to go un-judged is to go through a life unlived.

I hope you noted that this post is 100% sarcasm. Doing these things will yes, (almost) guarantee that you'll live a life free of judgement, but don't you see the limitations? Everywhere you go, you're going to be judged. And, though it's taken me a long time to get this through my head, I understand that now. So the best thing you can do is remind yourself that you are awesome and what those haters say doesn't matter.

Afterall, what they say says more about themselves, than it does about you.

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.

Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
