Judge Me Not

Do you consider yourself to be a judgmental person? I would guess that most people do not. However, there are plenty in the world, so chances are you might actually be judgmental and don’t realize it.

That’s ok, I’m not judging you!

Being tolerant of others and their differences can be challenging, but a very worthwhile proposition.

There are many colloquialisms and phrases having to do with this (pot and kettle, casting first stone, people living in glass houses, etc.) and there is a reason! Judging others has been going on for millennia. I would like to think that, in our society, the situation may be improving, but I am not a sociologist, so I can’t say for sure.

However, I can only speak for myself, and I, for one, try not to be judgmental of others. My opinions are just that, and other people are entitled to theirs, as long as they don’t physically hurt me or attempt to take away my right to an opinion.

No matter what your opinion, there are some who will agree strenuously and others who will just as strenuously disagree.

Practice how you offer your opinions and try not to let them sound too judgmental. Those people who are very judgmental can often come off as being hypocritical, as demonstrated in fellow print owner Craig Musgraves’ daughter Kacey’s song “Follow Your Arrow.”

Your coworkers, family, friends and customers might notice if you are being judgmental and might not like it. Think about it…can you do better? I know I am going to try!
