Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about how much people judge each other. Throughout our lives, we have all judged someone. I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We all have. And sometimes, we don’t even realize when we are doing it. But the question is WHY do we do it? We have no right to judge someone else. Just like someone has no right to judge us. We don’t know what someone has been through in their life. We don’t know what adversities they have faced. So why judge someone when you literally know nothing about them or their life? And even if you think you know someone, chances are you still don’t know anything that they have been through.
Every time we judge someone, we miss the opportunity to truly get to know them because we are so focused on what WE think about them even though we know absolutely nothing about them. I think we all need to stop judging each other and placing stereotypes on each other. What do we really gain by doing that? Nothing. We gain nothing from judging someone except for a misguided portrayal of them.
Yes, I have judged someone before. And I was wrong to do that. Just like its wrong for someone else to judge me as well. And after thinking about this topic many times, I don’t want to be that person who just judges other people. And I’m not going to be anymore. And I hope that some of you after reading this will be right there with me. It’s time to make a change.
