I Try Not to Judge

    Always That One

    I usually don't judge people at all!! But sometimes there's always this one person who eats at my skin because of certain things they do. Like the immoral, wrong and pathetic reasons to hurt someone else. If you've hurt someone I care about and you come up with a lame...

    Yes but sometimes I can't help it.

    If this someone looks dangerous in a way, I'd back off.

    I try not to judge without getting to know the

    person first! First impressions don't count neither because that person could have been having a bad day, get to know the person! Something I learn

    I Try Not to Judge...

    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...

    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...

    It's Wrong

    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...

    I'm not a girl who would spread a rumor about

    somebody. In fact, I don't mix-in with any typical girl group at school at all. I try really hard to avoid them because every girl at my school likes girl talk, and girl talk is terrifying for a girl who doesn't want to say anything bad about someone.

    Because I Know Why I Shouldn't.

    I remember when me and my mum were in a shop and we saw this really thin woman, buying loads of chocolate and sweets. My mum said, "wow, I wish I could eat what I liked and be as thin as you!" and the woman laughed but then said, "I have a condition in which I can't gain any...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    A dear friend of mine was doing some things

    that hurt me. I had a frank discussion first to let her know they hurt me and to ask why she was doing this. I just don't understand the behavior. Now I'm cut off for being judgmental. I was asking why. How can I judge what I dint fully understand

    Why Judge?

    that I love unconditionally, but one of them is a little bit closed-minded and criticizes me at least once every time we see each other. I don't really care but I do wish I could meet and have people more like myself around me. I love tolerant, free, genuine people.

    I Am Not God
