Since I won't be able to publish this tomorrow I am putting it out now! I hope no one minds!

This is a subject that has been weighing on my brain all day today and I find the best way to get through this is to just let it go. 

I was playing with paint lol! So for those ( like me) that cannot read that little font here is a larger version of the same thing.

The Box by Leanne Herrera

I get so angry when people decide who I am by what category I fit into.
Am I gay, straight, bisexual?
White, Black, Other?
Republican, Democrat, Liberal?
Pro-choice, Pro-life, indifferent?
Then I realized I am just as guilty of assuming 
as the ones that anger me. 

I put people in that box that I am trying to climb out of. 
I put things in there too. 
I judge people if they are different than me
I don't mean to

It is like the old saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover."
I don't
Well not completely
but even if I read the synopsis, reviews, and excerpts 
that cover will taint my viewpoint

I think people judge each other the same way.
It is how we decide if we want to give them a chance
How unfair is that?
I certainly don't like being put into a box 
or tainted in someone's eyes 
simply for a part of me that is probably less than 10% of who I am

But how do you stop?
I have no idea and it makes me sad.
I wish I could start over in life 
and not have all these preconceived notions 
dumped inside my box

but I would still be in a box
wouldn't I?
Even if it is one 
that I built myself.
