    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 understand it can sometimes be necessary.

    I once befriended a violent man from the wrong side of the canal who threatened me with a knife. Three weeks later he violently raped a girl ona Friday night out. It hurt, my judgement failed me. But outwith these extreme situations, it does occur to me that people's feelings...

    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...

    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...

    Look it at this way. That person you are

    judging could possibly change you life for the better. They could be the person you are looking for in a true friend or someone that would be there until the very end or be a shoulder to cry on. That person could also be going through a hard time or thinking of taking their...

    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...

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    Story of my life. Got adopted by white middle

    class parents. Went from living in the projects to living in rich white neighborhood. I dress like a ghetto kid because that's my style but people assume I'm ignorant, that I'm a different species. These people who are quick to judge disgust me. I can relate to those in the...
