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.
“Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you” – Unknown
Flaws are what make us human. Flaws are what make each and every one of us beautiful and unique. Instead of hating your flaws and hating yourself because of them, you should be accepting them. Why constantly put yourself down over something that we ALL have?
Stop hating yourself because of them. Don’t let them control you. You have to conquer them. As soon as you can learn to love and accept your own flaws, the happier you’ll be. Why? Because you will finally realize that you ARE beautiful. And that it’s okay to have them. If other people can accept your flaws, then you should too. However, throughout life, you will run into some people who can’t accept your flaws. But the only reason they can’t accept yours, is because they haven’t yet accepted their own.
“If a person can’t handle your flaws, then they don’t deserve to see your gifts.”
The people who can accept your flaws are the best kind of people. Because not only have they come to accept and love their own, but they have come to accept and love yours as well. And that’s the kind of people we should be. The kind who not only accepts and loves ourselves, but loves and accepts others too 🙂
Our flaws are what make us flawless.
“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner” – Lao Tzu
Always be yourself. Don’t ever let someone else’s opinion of you, change who you are. Don’t ever let what someone else thinks of you, get you down. We are all unique in our own way. Don’t change into something you’re not just to please others. Who cares what they think? Those people who can’t accept you the way you are, don’t deserve to be in your life in the first place. Only surround yourself around the people who love and accept you for who you are. Because there is nothing more beautiful than being yourself.
Happy New Year! As the new year begins, I have felt motivated and inspired to try & start new things this year. So I thought to myself, why not start a blog? And with that, you might be wondering: “Really? Out of all things, she chose to start a blog?” And my answer to that is, well yes, why not? Life is all about trying and experiencing new things. And because of that, I have made a vow to be more open minded this year. I want to experience as many new things as I can. You too, should make a promise to yourself this year. And on that note, I wish you all a great 2015.
