Judging others is something that most of us struggle with from time to time. Maybe it is as simple as judging a celebrity in the news, or an acquaintance on social media, or a stranger you encounter during your day. If you’re keeping it to yourself, it might feel like there is no harm to a few harsh thoughts. But the truth is that while you might be directly this negatively elsewhere, it will come back to hurt you in the end. Small judgements can lead to developing a prejudice that will not serve you in leading a happier life with an open heart.
Instead, if you don't feel that you understand someone's actions or lifestyle, listen to their point of view without inserting your own ideas of their motives and choices. You might find that you have more in common than you originally thought.

When attempting to curb your judgement, some people suggest it can be helpful to repeat the mantra, “just like me.” This will allow you to rehumanize the person you are judging and remember we are all deserving of respect. (Psychology Today)
Judgement often comes when you are stressed or are feeling vulnerable. It is important to realize that you are most likely lashing out at an innocent person when the problem really lies within yourself. Keep in mind that you can’t change anyone but yourself. So, while you might not like what others do, more progress can be achieved by looking within. (Psychology Today)
Question: Think back to the last time you judged someone. Were they really hurting anyone with whatever you judged them for?
