    Judging V.s. Judgement

    I try not to be too critical of others' lives. Afterall, I would be a VERY lonely person if people judged and turned away from me for EVERY mistake I've ever made! However, I think SOME judgement is neccessary for protection, and self-preservance. So, I'll be honest. I won't...

    For everyone who abuses the principle "Do not judge me" that the world has been doing to not feel guilty of things they want to do, you need to stop riding the fence on this. I don't think or say "Do not judge me". But I notice everybody who says "Do not judge" supports judgement...

    I Try

    I really do try not to judge people.. I' don't always succeed, but at least I've realized it's wrong to judge people, and I know when I do it.. So, now I try to control it... which it several steps ahead of most of this planet's population.

    Always That One

    I don't like people judging me (even though they do anyway) because I'm older, because I'm fat or for whatever other reason they can come up with. How I look, how I live my life is not for anyone to judge. How other people want to live...is not for me to judge either or for...

    The Truth Of The Matter Really

    is that a lot of people in life have taken the Christian principle "Judge not lest ye be judged" and used it and abused it to drastic proportions allowing themselves to get away with all kinds of things in life. There is a huge difference between disliking a choice someone made...

    Judging Vs Opinon

    I try not to judge how someone wants to live their life, but that does not mean I do not have an opinon on the subject.  A opinon is not a judgement.  I can disagree with you just as you can disagree with me.  This opens us up to a great discussion.  It is...

    Acceptance Is a Form of Judgement

    I've always thought that accepting and judging were two different concepts.  If you accept someone as the they are, you're not judging, right?  Our friends have their opinions, our spouses another, even  the people we meet on the street.  What do we say when...

    I Am Not God

    In my eyes I have no right to sit back and judge people. Behind every person is a story. To look at someone and judge them would be implying that I know their entire life story.  I accept people for what they are. Everybody has a story, and their story has moulded them into...

    Why Judge?
