Before you judge someone

Each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own. Before you judge someone, please realise that your judgement is a product of your upbringing, your parents, your friends, your personal experiences, your environment, and your wiring.

In truth, no one has the right to judge another. No one really knows what the other person has been through. What feels honest to you may feel false to someone else. If we all took the time to know the other person inside out, we would stop all judgement.

Do not judge your neighbour until you walk two moons in his moccasins. – Cheyenne

That includes us.

“We probably judge ourselves way harsher than anyone judges us.” – The Fosters

Diversity is what creates shapes and colour. If you want to live in a black and white two-dimensional world, keep judging.

Let me be clear, you are not judgemental for judging people based on how they treat others.

“There is no such thing as a model or ideal Canadian… A society which emphasises uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate… What the world should be seeking, and what in Canada we must continue to cherish, are not concepts of uniformity but human values: compassion, love, and understanding.” – Pierre Trudeau, former prime minister
