We’ve all judged someone. Sometimes we don’t even realize we’re doing it, but there is no excuse to justify this behavior. You may judge others because you feel that they are different, because you don’t think they measure up to your standards, or because they don’t think the same way you do. Or, you may jump to conclusions without knowing the whole story.
The truth is, you have no idea what another person has been through or what they’re going through, so you don’t have the right to make judgments.
We usually don’t think about how our negative attitude and actions can make another person feel. Not only should we think about this before making the decision to act or think negatively, but we should also think about how we are going to feel afterward. More often than not, you will feel an overwhelming sense of regret and guilt.
Of course, we don’t want to be the reason someone’s feelings get hurt, but we still act in a way that might cause another pain. However, there is always room to become a better person. Everything we go through in life will teach us something, and so will this.
We should always make a point to change the parts of ourselves that we are not so proud of, because most times our negative actions will come back to bite us if we aren’t careful.
People will always be judgmental, but that doesn’t mean you can’t strive to be better. Always show kindness to others, not only in your actions but your words too.
The next time you find yourself judging someone, think about how you would feel if you were in that position, and you’ll think twice about making that judgment.
