A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…
“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”
Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…
“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…
“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”
The old man smiled and said…
“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”
What things are your judgements based on? Do you judge people by what you see or by what you truly understand?
It’s common that we judge people’s actions by our own perception. Does any of these situations ring a bell with you?
- A colleague just got dumped by her boyfriend, and other colleagues would be like “she had to be too annoying or clingy” or “her boyfriend must have cheated”.
- A kid failed in school exams, and people knew him would be like “he’s too lazy” or “obviously his family doesn’t care about him”.
- An old man was begging in the street, and passers-by would be like “he must have done something bad that his family abandoned him” or “he deserves it, he probably never worked hard”.
I believe there’re even more situations in which people make judgements without truly understanding what actually happened.
A reckless judgement can hurt people’s feelings, even worse, ruin a person’s life.
Besides, who are we to make judgements to people? None of us are perfect and we all have faults.
“Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect -and I don’t live to be- but before you start pointing fingers…make sure you hands are clean!” – Bob Marley
