Do You Judge?
Do you find yourself judging people when they do something ‘you’ don’t think is right? When they act a way that ‘you’ don’t consider to be the best way to act? When they say something ‘you’ don’t think should be said? . . .
When you see someone walking down the street and they are someone you don’t think you’d like to know, what’s going through your mind? Are you judging them? Sure. We all do that to a certain extent.
Are we happy we judge? No. It’s not right to put people down, if only in our minds. And, of course, you shouldn’t be putting them ‘up,’ either.
To judge means you are making someone better than you or worse than you. I really don’t think that’s how life should be, do you?
However, it is sometimes difficult not to judge, isn’t it? All our lives we’ve been taught to think, rightly or wrongly, about what we or someone else is doing. Always, it seemed, there was a winner and a loser. If you are like a large part of the population, most times you are the loser.
BUT, and it’s a big but, that’s not the way life should be. You never come out ahead when you put someone down. At least, not where it counts.
If you want to live the good life, and if you want to be at peace, you know it isn’t going to happen if you continually judge people. Why? Because someone always comes out lacking.
Why? Because the minute you judge, you take a little bit of goodness away from yourself.
“But it’s a habit, what can I do?,” you say?
Here’s what you can do. . .
Imagine the scenario where you have just judged someone, and not nicely. Now, imagine that someone has put a mirror in front of your face and you are seeing a true picture of yourself with your nose in the air. It doesn’t make you feel very good, does it?
Now, you see someone else that you judged, only this time it’s someone you admire so much you just wish you were more like them. Someone puts a mirror up to your face. There you are, green with envy. Not a very good picture, is it?
What if the whole world knew what you are thinking? What if they saw the same pictures you saw — you with your nose in the air or you green with envy? Do you think you would think twice about judging someone?
I think so, too.
Here’s an idea. Why not realize what you are doing ahead of time and DON’T DO IT? Give that other person a chance. Put everyone on the same pedestal. A pedestal of equality and love. You just might make some great new friends that way, and wouldn’t that be terrific?
