Have you ever made a bad snap judgment about someone before you got to really know him or her? I think that we are all guilty of that. I have been thinking about this lately as my nine year old brought it to my attention that I am making fun of people I don’t know. The things we learn from our children. It made me think that we judge because we are feeling judged.
We are all harder on ourselves than we are on others right? We need to feel better about our insecurities so we find other people that we think aren’t as good and talk about them.
I think the times we know that others are talking about us make it harder than the rest. The people that we trust with our whole selves that judge our family, friends and co-workers. These are the people we see the most in our lives yet we judge the most. Why is it that we can’t love these people for who they are and not what they do?
We all know when we are being judged you can see it on their faces and they treat you differently. I know from experience that this can cause a huge rift in relationships that you really care about.
Challenge yourself put you in their shoes. How would you treat them differently if you were in their situation, or how could you help them? We all have that one person who tries to fix you and they think that they are doing it in a nice way right? The gentle you could try this or here is this. What these people don’t know is that they need to love you for who you already are.
There are way too many examples of bullying or judging out there. We need to make a stand and be the example of kindness and charity. I get that there are people out there that take advantage of people who are good- natured, but we need to use our best gut feeling in these situations.
I think that we all need to live our live so that people don’t have the negative to judge. Make smart decisions so that they can’t judge the negative. Put yourself out there and not judge. Love your loved ones so that they can’t judge you.
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
