    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...

    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...

    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 Try Not To Judge...but I Still Do

    It is very hard to not judge people. Your just going along with your life, minding your own business, and some loud obnoxious person, will pass by, and you will make judgments about them and their behavior, their upbringing. I go to the local market to buy groceries, and this...

    Perspective

    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...

    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 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.

    Why Judge?

    I know everyone does it--it's human nature--but it's really not necessary to judge people. Chances are, your impression is completely wrong, and then you end up thinking something of someone that is entirely false. I'm friends with a lot of eclectic people thanks to my striving...

    I Am Not God

    The Truth Of The Matter Really
