Why Do People Judge Others?
Judgment hurts and destroys a person.
We all have different characteristics whether physical or not, we also have different thoughts, attitudes and beliefs and we also have different stories. But despite our characteristics being different from everyone else, we always put our neighbors in a group as if we knew them. Such an action is judgmental, judgmental of our whole humanity. Why do we judge others when we do not know the other side of the coin?
The judgment of an individual is like the "second nature" of people. It serves as a natural reaction or in other words it is like a “survival instinct” of ours to defend ourselves when we feel threatened or when we become ignorant of whatever may be the cause of people’s actions. Aside from its “natural instinct,” I believe that we judge our neighbors because of our jealousy, because we want to improve ourselves and because what they do is contrary to our own beliefs.
Because of envy we demean other people. We judge people when we are jealous of what they have or what they are. We are that kind of organism that can’t enjoy what we have, we always want to be better than other people and when we see others have them and we don’t, we feel envy. So, we judge people and make them negative or unworthy of what they have. This kind of behavior of a person makes us bitter and unresponsive to the blessings given to us.
If there are people who judge when they are jealous, there are people who judge when they feel they are inferior. When they feel this they form a false judgment to make other people negative. In other words, there are people who lower others to improve their own feelings. Like when someone is beautiful and you think you're under him, you'll create or look for bad situations like "this person did plastic surgery so he became beautiful, eew the fake." This behavior is similar to those who are jealous and their actions show that they do not accept themselves.
We all have our own beliefs and standards but sometimes our beliefs result in us being ignorant, not able to respect others and we become close-minded. One example, you believe that a formal gathering should be quiet but there are people who are noisy and laughing and you tell yourself that they have no respect and their action is a disgrace. This kind of thinking is for the close-minded and sometimes because of this we put someone in a group even if we don’t know the person like “bad”, “ugly”, “diabetic” etc., it is stereotyping and offensive. it's human because we seem to underestimate them.
Lower ourselves so respect other people with truth. No one has the same perspective on a person, we are all different. We must know how to respect our differences and not underestimate each other and because of our differences we must not judge because we also do not want people to judge. Let’s just imagine that we are in their shoes when we judge, let’s ask ourselves if we are happy when people do the same. We all don’t want to judge that people don’t know the whole story yet because when we do it we marealize how wrong you are judging without knowing the truth. Let us not be ignorant, we are educated people so let us act like one. Other than that, whatever and whoever we are we must be able to accept ourselves. The Lord made us this way because He knows it is right for us and if we feel like we are missing the right path, let us change. Let us avoid judgment because we will only be bitter and sad and eventually we will only regret our actions.
Have a nice day dear #rusty and to all our read cash family.
