I enjoy watching Orange is the New Black because of the characters and the inmates’ stories. This quote screamed out to me when I heard the character Tastee say this strong message to her cellmate.
A relative recently asked me, “Joyce, why do you put so much time into your career?” Believe me, it was not out of concern. She was sarcastic and judgmental! I said, “I’m working hard not to judge me. I wish you’d do the same.” She backed off immediately. I said it gently even though I wanted to be sarcastic myself. Hey, I teach this stuff and better communicate directly and in a respectful way.
How can you use this quote with colleagues or relatives? It’s a good one to store for future reference. 🙂
Send me an email HERE if you have your own method of stopping people who judge you.
Share if you agree with Tastee’s words.
