Something has stood out, in the news and social media, lately. The amount of judgement. We seem to judge everything!

At the awards ceremonies, we have the 'best and worst' dressed. We judge these people, who's main aim is to entertain us, simply on the way they look.
Unfortunately it seems to be aimed mostly at the women. If a man does something a little different, he's applauded, if it's a woman she's mocked. It's not exclusive to women, but they seem to bare the brunt.
There's been news about reality stars, splitting up, this week. The main statements made, in the comments section, is about their size!? What does that have to do with anything.
I'm not a fan of reality TV, I watch very little. However, I don't pass judgement on these people. If they can make a living doing what they do, let them. I'm a big of: If you don't like it, don't watch/follow/read etc etc.
I saw a lovely interview with Anne Hegarty, of The Chase fame. She is overweight, she blames it on her love of cake, and she doesn't exercise. She also made it clear that she has no health issues, she had a check up recently and had a clean bill of health.
So why does her size have to be an issue?
The only person that's being financially burdened by her eating habits, is her! She's the one that has to do the grocery shopping!
However, there even seems to be a backlash on people trying to get healthy, people saying that those encouraging diet and exercise are shaming larger people. Actually, I'm one of those sharing my attempt to get healthier, and lose weight. I'm not shaming anyone!? If you are larger, happy and healthy, enjoy it.
Honestly, when will it be ok to just be you?
When will we stop judging how mothers feed their children,
judging people by their size,
comparing one lifestyle to another?
What difference does it make to you, what a Kardashian wore last week? Yes, give your opinions but, when it comes to the crunch, it's her choice.
It's ok to be you.
It's ok to wear a mini skirt when you're 70.
It's ok to dye your hair like a rainbow, in your middle age.
Just be you, stop judging others.
