I read a quote last night and it really struck me.
“None of us like judgmental people. But we are all, to a certain extent, judgmental people. After all, one must be judgmental to even judge others as judgmental.”
It’s a really interesting way to put it. Truthfully, I had to read it back to myself about three times before I understood (but that was probably just the wine).
I don’t consider myself to be a judgmental person. On the contrary, I’m that person who’s heart aches for those that are constantly judged and belittled.
Everyone is so judgmental and I can’t begin to understand, nor explain why.
The way I see it is, we are all flawed and we really must find a way to be patient with the imperfections of others. Everyone you meet will be slightly imperfect and that’s completely ok, because perfection is both unrealistic and unattainable. Sometimes, the smallest defect turns out to be someone’s most unique feature.
We are all human. You shouldn’t have to apologize for your flaws. You shouldn’t have to justify your mistakes or your past. As long as your growing and learning, just live to your own expectations.
Passing judgment on someone else doesn’t define them as a person, but rather defines you. I don’t care about your screwed up past, I don’t care if you have face tattoos or 20 piercings, I don’t care if you have a lot of money or don’t, I am in no place to judge and neither is anyone else. Humans by nature are not perfect and imperfections are what makes the world beautiful.
