Do you judge people? I would love to sit here and write I'm such a great, open minded and kind person and I don't judge people but that's not true. I judge. And I hate it.
Despite our best efforts, we all judge others. It might be a classmate who behaves selfishly and doesn't talk too much. Or maybe a teacher who is not friendly at all.
We all have one thing in common; we all are different. If one doesn't like doing something, doesn't mean other people should not do it. For example, If you like shopping online and you don't like going shopping, you should not tell others that shopping is boring. People can do whatever they want. We should not judge other people based on our own preferences.
Sometimes when we meet people for the very first time and we start judging them by their appearances. Appearance is often deceptive that's why we should never judge someone by their appearance. When I joined National College of arts, I didn't like few people in the beginning but now they are my good friends.
Why do we judge other people?The main reason is that we are insecure. When we are unhappy with who we are, we start judging other people and want to put them down. We want to feel good by making others feel bad. I'm becoming a lot more comfortable with who I am, therefore, I judge others less. (Yaay).
When others do things that are annoying, they might have problems going on in their life. For example, if a student doesn't come to class on time. Doesn't mean he is doing it on purpose. Maybe he is living so far from the campus or maybe he can't wake up early in the morning.
Albert Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Remember, we are more alike than different. When I feel critical of someone, I try to remind myself that the other person loves their family just like I do, and wants to be happy and free of suffering, just like I do. Most important, that person makes mistakes, just like I do.
Keep one thing in mind
judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are.
Let me know if you like my blog. Leave a comment and tell me how should we stop judging other people. Looking forward to your comments. Thank you!
