WHY WE JUDGE OTHERS

Judging others is the most effective way to strengthen the assumptions on which we base our views. These views are the aggregation of everything we have thought of and imagined and mostly  limited by the experiences, and emotions that we refuse or deny.

WE ARE QUICK TO JUDGE BECAUSE:
*we are proud
*we don’t ask questions
*we hate 
*we can’t do what they do
*we are weak
*we are idle
*we don’t appreciate
*we’ve never been there
*we don’t know
*we are not willing to know
*we are bored
*we are afraid
*we are myopic in thinking
*we have limited imagination
*we don’t want to accept 
*we have no idea what it feels like
*we think we know
*we think we are religious
*we feel inferior
*we feel intimidated

TO STOP BEING JUDGEMENTAL:
1. We’ll have to admit that what we see of others is our picture and ours alone. Now what you see may be a striking opposite of the reality

2. We’ll have to admit we are responsible for what we accept, what we reject, and what we pay attention to.

3. We’ll need to acknowledge that we are the creators and designers of our own assumptions.
  
So when next we’re praying, we shouldn’t forget to ask God for soft hearts, minds that appreciate, eyes that see the best in people, and a mouth that speak well of others.
