“It is so easy to draw conclusions and judge others when you do not know their story or fully understand the reasons why they do the things they do. It is easy to condemn, put down, & ridicule those who walk a different path. We all do it….
Though it is human to evaluate people & situations we encounter based on first impressions, the conclusions we come to are seldom unaffected by our own fears, experiences, our own preconceptions, & limited perspectives. As such, our judgments are frequently incomplete. If we explored a bit more deeply into the heart of the tendency to categorize and criticize, we would often find our own personal insecurity.
Recognizing that we limit our awareness by assessing others critically can make moving past our initial impressions much easier. Judgments seldom leave room for alternate possibilities.
We often Empower our own Self Image through Disempowering others.
Harsh judgment and anger is far worse for the heart than any plaque or cholesterol laden food. To judge one moment in time, without regard for the past or what is to come in the future, lacks wisdom.
None of us enjoy being Judged, but we dole out hasty & often hateful judgements to others on a regular basis. We all want to be heard, understood, and accepted, so isn’t it humorous that we often chose not to extend those same courtesies to others.
Learn to Listen to each other’s story; find some compassion; judge less and love more…starting with yourself. Judge Less & Accept More. To Accept (to receive or acknowledge something) does not mean you Agree (harmonize in opinion, feeling, or view). To enable connection, one must be willing to accept the ideas of other people as, at the very least, true for them.
We will likely never all agree about our belief systems or life choices for that matter, and while it is great to build a network of people who do view the world and other lifestyle choices the same way you do, we also need to respect those who choose to live or believe in a way we disagree with… without being arrogant or judgmental in our interactions.
As the greatest cause of Dis-Ease in man is often the heavy servings of guilt, condemnation, judgement, impatience, intolerance, & lack of love that we feed one another on a daily basis.” – Shared with Love, Twin Spirit ❦
