Day 119 (A Hundred & Nineteen) of 365 days

What gives you the right to judge someone by the way they look? Or the way they act? Or what culture or race they are? You don't. No one does. But in the world, we live in, where society's opinions matter, we can't help but judge people by their appearance and behavior. It's the subconscious part of our mind that makes judgments of the people around us who may be your friends or someone you have never seen before.

Everyone is different and has something about them that makes them who they are. Many people judge. It's hard for some to stop when it's human nature but it's not fair. That shouldn't be an excuse anymore. The world is changing and so are people. Some too many people are being bullied daily for being themselves. People should not be outcasts for the clothes they wear, the color of their skin, their sexuality, their culture, or anything else. It's not our job to judge and have a stigma against people. We need to stop.

Yes, in the past I use to judge people all the time, mostly in my head or to my friends but that's when I was younger and didn't love myself as much. I think people that judge a lot don't completely love themselves or just think they are better than everyone. I can understand if it happens in your head once in a while because you can't always help it. However, if everything you have to say means or judge someone for being themselves, that's a problem. Also, a lot of people that judge swear they are perfect or get offended when some else does it to them. Why should you judge and when others do it to you it's a problem? It hurts or offends you when someone does it, but you constantly do it to others. Seems like something a hypocrite would do. Look I just judged you. It makes you feel a way that I did right.

I always have tried to practice not judge people until I listen to their stories. Of course, I don't have the time in a day to listen to everyone's problems but I give everyone the benefit of the doubt and let them do their thing or whatever makes them happy. Passing judgment is not something everyone should do but consider the source. We are usually not authorized to judge people because in return if we were to look at our reflection in a mirror, there would be a finger pointing right back at us. Be patient with yourselves and others.

I believe that you should never judge anyone until you've walked a mile in their shoes!
