    Not my article... just trying to prove a point.

    Throughout your life, there will be people who are going to think and say some of the most inappropriate things about you. No matter how good of a person you are, there will always be someone there to judge you, negatively. In most cases, when you hear something that was said about you that you did not like, you instantly become emotionally bothered. See, when you allow the words and thoughts of others to affect you enough to cause you to act out of emotion. Then, you are giving the other person power over your emotions, and no one besides yourself should have any form of control over your emotions. Although, no one on this earth enjoys judgment, however, unfortunately we cannot control others; feelings, thoughts or the words that discharges from their mouths. Therefore, we must not worry nor give in to other's perceptions of us. The moment you start living for yourself, none of the worries of what others think will matter. In addition, one of the most important factors is learning to accept yourself along with all of your imperfections. Embrace your flaws and become comfortable with who you are, therefore the opinion of others will no longer be a worry. Accept, that people will also say things about you that is not true, but that is when you have to say, "It's not true" and feel nothing afterwards. People are going to believe what they want, think what they want and say what they want, and do not make it your job to care or become affected by the things they say. Those who down you and hurt your feelings, intentionally; are people who are suffering from their own insecurities, and it makes them feel better by downing others.


    The things people may think and/or say about you, does not define who you are. You are what you are, and they are what they act like, which are assholes.

    4/10? Dunno what was up with the periodic missed spaces, grammar was off at various times and I felt like the article as a whole went in circles and didn't lead me anywhere.

    Yeah some of the words seemed to stick together after copy/paste.

    4/10 as well. The idea is there, but the article does not flow well. The article becomes redundant at times and really does not prove the point. There are certainly some comma issues, but the biggest grammatical issue I saw was: " See, when you allow the words and thoughts of others to affect you enough to cause you to act out of emotion. Then, you are giving the other person power over your emotions, and no one besides yourself should have any form of control over your emotions. "

    Now that you pasted it here, it won't do you much good when It comes to SEO, Google Is not a fan of duplicate content...

    I would give the article 7/10. Whoever wrote it obviously tried to stretch it out.

    You can sum up this article with "haters gonna hate". This is the internetZ i dontS care about grammErz.

    If the article ended something like this "you can use this to your advantage by paying for indian workers to start arguments with comment posters on youtube videos" then i would give it a 10.

    The article won't particularly be of any use to anyone. There are some awfully awkward sentences in there as-well, I assume this is off some cheap article service?

    Not 500 words. 0/10

    Jk, but like the others, sentences didn't seem to flow. Way too many commas and semicolons especially here:

    I am actually trying to tell a guy that he needs more practice. He asked if I could get some reviews on it for him.

    Article contains too much fluff. The writer needs to work on conveying ideas with fewer words. Long sentences with ideas attached onto ideas will only make readers click the back button, or an ad if that's your intention.

    5/10. I might put something like this on my tier 1 if the writer was willing to fix it up.

    Depends on the end goal doesn't it? For page filler SEO content that you just want as a post or link from, assuming it's all original and copyscape hit free 6 or 7 / 10. For something that's supposed to captivate an audience and be read by human eyes. 3/10

    As a professional writer, 2/10. This isn't even an article and it was obviously outsourced to a non-native English speaker.

    I will rate it as 5/10. The use of conjunctions and punctuation on the article seems annoying. They are redundantly use on the article and it seems that the article was intentionally stretch to reach the desired amount of word count.

    All around not a good article for an English audience.

    Fro the article point, it should have an opening, a body, and a summation, this has none.

    It words are English, but it is not written in a proper vernacular.

    Writing using words like "assholes" is a no-no, many people will mark the article as a beginners attempt just because of that word. We only use this term with close friends or in an altercation. Polite socuety doe not use these words.
