It can definitely be hard to be judged and misjudged and I'm sorry you had to go through that. A quote I read the other day came to mind as I read your post:
"I preach the Bible every day, and sometimes I open my mouth to do it." (I thought of this quote due to these ladies' reading the Bible)
Obviously it has to do with our actions and how we choose to live our lives. You may be 19 and these other ladies quite a bit older, but don't underestimate your opportunity or ability to show them how to live with compassion, understanding, and patience. Sometimes taking the high road and responding with grace and dignity can be hard, but the rewards can be great. Good luck!
