PTSD Patrol you don't belong in the boondocks

Some people think they have the right to judge you, without even knowing you. They judge you by the way you dress, the type of car you drive, where you live, but other than that, they don't know YOU.

I spent a lot of years with motorcyle charity groups. People judge us and wanted to stay away from us on the road, because we wore leather vests and rode Harleys. We didn't care when they gave us dirty looks when we went in for a meal someplace on the road, because the purpose of the ride was always for chairty. We were doing good but none of that mattered because they usualy just judged instead of coming over to talk to us.

There is nothing you can do to change their minds, because apparently, they do not have the ability to think in the first place. It sucks to be judged but sucks ever more when you are hurting and need someone to talk to. They end up causing you to retreat further into yourself and your pain, instead of bothering to actually get to know you.

That is not your problem. It is theirs. You know what you are like and how much you care for others, so let that feed hope within you. Most of the time you need to talk to someone but are afraid to ask. Ask yourself what you would do if someone needed help from you. Would you judge them or help them? If you decided to help them, would you think less of them because they had to ask or more of them and their trust in you, because they turned to you?

Today the feature video is about being judged. Down In The Boondocks. Don't let people put you down because they never earned the right to.

Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in

I love her, she loves me
But I don't fit in her society
Lord, have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Every night I watch the lights from the house up on the hill
I love a little girl that lives up there and I guess I always will
But I don't dare knock on her door
'Cause her daddy is my boss man
So I'll just have to be content
To see her whenever I can
Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
I love her, she loves me
But I don't fit in her society
Lord, have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
One fine day I'll find the way 
To move from this old shack
I'll hold my head up like a king 
And I never, never will look back
Until that morning, I'll work and slave
And I'll save every dime
But tonight, she'll have to steal away
To see me one more time
Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
I love her, she loves me
But I don't fit in her society
Lord, have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Lord, have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Lord, have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
