I Think People Are Too Quick To Judge

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 412 People

    It's The Way Society Is...

    We judge someone as soon as we meet them...or even when we just see them. There's always that first impression..whether it's good or bad. I try not to judge anyone..the way they look, their lifestyle, the way they act, etc. Sometimes it's hard not to make snap judgments. Like...

    There Is No Question That I Make Judgements

    I think it is a necessary part of life. It's our survival mechanism and it's our way of decision making so that we decide what is right for us. Where Quickly judging becomes wrong, is what you do when you make that judgement of others. Do you tell them that they are wrong? Do you...

    And Honestly...

    sometimes I am too...I try to catch myself though and think about it in a different way or put myself in that person's shoes etc... But in this society that we grow up in its like we are almost brainwashed in a sick way to be judgemental...not that I am blaming I'm just saying...

    So I'm going to kind of go out on a limb here,

    this story will be different than my others. Mostly I just talk about myself, but this one is about a very arguable subject- ahh, religion. What sparked this was a recent situation at my school. So, a girl, we'll call her maddie, has gay uncles. I don't think being gay is right...

    I've said some really stupid things,

    I've done some really stupid things. People just define who I am by some mistakes. I have mental disorders and I haven't been treated for so of course I'm going to be an idiot at times. People always just make judgments about others. You haven't walked in my shoes, so don't just...

    Me Too ...

    In a world where everything moves at such a fast pace, we are forced to make snap judgements about people often based on the most trivial and surface information. We probably don't even realize we are doing to .... but it is what it is. I do it all the time and fully expect...

    I Think Perhaps We Are

    Human nature is a strange thing and, however much we try not too, I think it's easy to fall into the trap of making judgements about other people which although not meant to be cruel, aren't necessarily fair either. Part of the trouble I think is we each have our own individual...

    Relax And Enjoy Life

    You see it everywhere in life. One person thinks another is too __________ (pick an adjective). It happens here just the same. People come here to share experiences, most of the time it is for acceptance, not criticism. People should be able to share their experiences...

    You don't know me at all. What you "know" is what I choose to show you, so quit judging me based on what you see - there's more to whatever is the real me.
