Don't judge a book by its cover

Sage advice, but when do we ever follow it.

I'm learning first-hand how wrong I was to judge others for a belief I thought was silly. But these health issues afflicting me have proven that there was truth to what I thought was simply a fad health food craze. Now, I know there's a reason for it.

I'm learning not to judge, lest the judgment be passed onto me. In other words, what goes around, comes around. And I'm now paying for that and will for the rest of my life with a restricted diet. No more cakes and ice cream or pie the way I remember. No more going out to eat carefree of the dangers lurking in our food supply. Now, any food can be a threat to my health--mental and physical.

You can't see the affliction, but my body says it's there and lets me know something fierce. I am adjusting but am in a trial-and-error stage.

We do judge books by their covers. Ask any reader what caught their attention on a book they had never known about previously.

We also judge people, but that is wrong. I've always tried not to, but it is in our nature and I am as guilty as anyone. However, I'm learning and I can only hope others learn before it's too late for them.

Now, I must live with the difficulties of my penance.
