    A Reminder To All..

    A lot of times on EP I notice responses to questions or confessions that are very negative and judgemental. We are all on here to express how we feel, that is what EP is about! :) I think we should all go by the old rule of "if you do not have anything nice to say then do not say...

    Your Own Journey

    If there is one motto I live by that is ..Do not judge others until you have walked the same path.Everyone is on their own journey, making their own choices, some of these choices you may agree with and some you may not but it's not our place to say what is right or wrong for...

    I Learned

    that being judgmental only caused me to judge myself more.  It was a completely destructive exercise.  So I learned to stop.  I'm supportive of everyone - and I try to be encouraging.  By being accepting and non-judgmental - it opens up a world of...

    Every Individual Walk

    Everybody has their own walk and if we take the time to listen to anothers story we learn something new about ourselves and our own walk. The key I believe is to hear and appreciate all walks of life and admire any talent great or small. warm regards to all Nadie.

    I haven't always been this way. As I get older and have more of my own experiences, both good and bad, I am far less judgemental. Some things are just plain"wrong," and most of us agree. You can't rape, murder, or abuse other people. Most other things that people have...

    I may not agree with your choices.  I may not understand them, and the unknown is always scary.  But I will listen, and suspend my judgement.  I will hear what you say, and what you do not say.  Your road may be very different from mine, and that's okay. ...

    Not Sure If I Am Or Not

    I am a really judgemental person in life. I guess that comes from years of being critiqued, coaching and then critiquing on my own. Then again there is no competition in these journeys so I shouldn't be too much of a smuck.

    If there is one thing that I have learned in this lifetime, it’s that you should never judge someone. No matter how beautiful they are, or how much they smile, or even how weird they act, there's always a story behind the face, a tale behind the mask. Never judge a book by...

    Every Path And Experience Is Real And Valid.

    This is a no-brainer. Everybody's path and experiences are real and valid. It's only arrogant and egotistical to pretend that yours is better, or even worse, the ONLY real path.
