The only people who try to put you down are people who are already beneath you. Unfortunately, some individuals feel the need to put other people down in order to raise themselves.

“It’s easy to judge. It’s more difficult to understand. Understanding requires compassion, patience, and a willingness to believe that good hearts sometimes choose poor methods. Through judging, we separate. Through understanding, we grow.” – Doe Zantamata
Human beings no matter what they are going through need understanding not judgment. This is why people need someone who listen to them. They need someone who will lend a ear without judgment and without taking over and trying to solve everything. It’s called active listening.
“One doesn’t have to operate with great malice to do great harm. The absence of empathy and understanding are sufficient.” – Charles M. Blow.
Everyone has their own story, their own reason why they are the way they are. That is why we shouldn’t be quick to judge. Instead we should strive to understand what makes them thick.
