Don't judge a person by the chapter in their life book that you came in on. You never know what a person has been through that shaped and molded the character you’re reading about.

He or she may be a little guarded or “funny acting”. Don't take that personal and start rippin' ‘em up. Thumb back three chapters ago where life taught that person to protect him/herself.... their peace... their spirit. I’ma tell ya…. Just because you came into the chapter of my life where I smile and hold my head high, don’t label me as bouji... because if you do, you'll miss it. (even though I might be a little bit bouji- lol)  But certainly don’t think you can't thumb back through the pages of my life and run across the chapter that explains what my smile costed me. It didn’t come free.

The problem with us is when we fall short, we want everyone to judge us based on our "good intentions" when we fall short. But wanna throw the whole book away when we come in on a chapter of someone else’s life that we don’t like.
