A new commenter named Miranda commented that “you’re clearly bothered when people judge you, but you judge your van neighbors as well as women who wear leggings in the same post”.

Hmmm…I had to think about this a bit.

I think we all judge.  What I don’t like is to be judged as unworthy or not good enough.  And there’s not a lot I can do about that.  I have chosen a life of poverty (rather than a lower middle class life) so I’m not going to look like I’m middle class.  I am ok with it most of the time but it hurts sometimes because I think I am mostly, still a good person.

I judged the van neighbor, it’s true.  I KNEW from her actions…even more than her appearance that she was going to cause a problem.  And I was right.

We all judge.  We judge everyday who we will and will not associate with…maybe even who we will or will not smile at.

As far as the leggings thing goes…I just think it stinks that women are such slaves to fashion (not wanting to be judged) than they dress in ways that are often unbecoming and are definitely undignified.  It’s just too bad.  I don’t think they are necessarily bad people or anything, just slavish.

We are all slaves too, to some extent.

I have to worry a little about what people think if I am going to keep working.  If I can’t work anymore for some reason, I don’t know what will happen to me.  I need a reason to get up in the morning.  What in the world would I do all day, without a job.

Well I guess I could go to school……I like school.  Hmmmmmmm.

PS.  Thanks Miranda, for reading and commenting.  Keep em coming!

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.
