The constant judgment in the world

When the hospital nurse asked Lucy Barton’s mother if she wanted a “gossip” magazine to read, she declined. And, although Lucy took the magazine, she hid it—just in case the doctor came in.

“So, I was like my mother. We did not want to be judged by what we read,” comments Lucy in Elizabeth Strout’s new book My Name Is Lucy Barton.

“But that is how sensitive we were, my mother and I. There is that constant judgment in the world: How are we going to make sure that we do not feel inferior to one another?”

After I read this passage, I thought about how sometimes I fear what other people will think about what I do or say and how sometimes I act a certain way so that they might think more highly of me.

    This is the right web site for anyone who would like to find out about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been written about for years. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try

    to get the hang of it!

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net

    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
