Let’s be honest here. We all judge others even when we try our best not to. Her clothes, her hair, his car, his job, their child’s school or 1,000 other things. But why?! Why do we feel like it’s ok to judge someone when we don’t know the whole story? And why do we think we deserve the whole story? Do we ever stop and think, “I wonder what that person is going through today?” I’m not here to say I am perfect. I’m far from it. But the older I get the more I realize that I certainly don’t like being judged nor does it make me feel good to judge someone else! I realize we’re all doing the best we can.
So, the next time we decide we know that persons story and we think we could have done better or differently, maybe we should take a step back and look into ourselves. Life isn’t about living up to someone else’s standards (easier said than done) or living for someone else. As I said last week, life is meant to be enjoyed!
