Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.
October 15th - don’t judge
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
I’ve never been a good judge of people and would never attempt to judge another. It’s not my job. I leave that up to someone who knows better than I do. I believe I am not beter than anyone else just as they are not better than me. We were all created equally and are equally loved. We are unique and all have something too offer.
Judging others, especially for things that do not concern us, only ever makes things worse. I used to think one of the gals in our circle was very stuck up and thought she was too good to help out when it was needed. turned out I was terribly wrong and as it turned out she was one of the most down to earth and most helpful people, I’d ever known. I learned to stop judging , we don’t gain any points for proving we are better than someone else, but can better our life from learning from others.
We judge without even thinking sometimes. Our opinions are based on our past experiences. We tend to believe that what worked for one of us, must work for others. The problem is that after a few experiences we believe we know it all and have earned the right to judge. We become over confident about our abilities and think lowly of others.
The important part is to be humble. Think about it, if you have learned so much from your own experience, imagine how much more you can learn from others. So take it slowly, make it a point to think at least once before forming an opinion of someone. It’s a toxic habit we need to stop in it’s tracks.
Tragedy is that our attention centers on what people are not, rather than on what they are and who they might become.
