We see someone falter, we judge.
We see someone give up, we judge.
We see someone struggle, we judge.
We hear half the story, we judge.
There’s a reason why judging isn’t any good. I think we judge because we forget. No, really. I mean that.
We forget we are just as human as that person. We forget our own failings, weaknesses and shortcomings. We forget the plank in our eyes.
Wanna hear something quintessentially human?
Judgments can be made in as quick as a snap.
We don’t know them. Or their story. We probably just met them then. But we judge. And call it first impression.
We’re funny that way. And mean.
Really, what good does it do?
We’ve all missed knowing someone absolutely incredible this way. I say, it’s time to take some intentional steps. I love what Bob Goff said, “Just go love everybody without agenda”.
Let’s stop judging. Let’s start loving.
