Who are we to pass judgements?

It’s easy to judge someone, without knowing what battles they might be fighting, unknown to you. Nothing hurts more than words than crawl underneath your skin. Some may be too good for their own good… so much so that they don’t even dare fight back against the gross injustice meted out to them.

It’s easy to judge someone, but to be on the receiving end is as much appealing as a burger found in the sewer! You’re got to be judged to understand the plight, the misery. It’s easy to look down and pass judgments, but lending a hand and/or ear to them would seem to be unthinkable.

Everyone is flawed. There’s no perfect human being. Who are we to pass judgment when we ourselves are not perfect. But sadly, this fact slips from our mind when we start passing judgments over people whom we “look down” upon.

Doing the right thing is hard. Some have the courage to do so. Others don’t. What seems right to me may seem totally in the wrong to you. It’s not up to us to decide what is right or wrong for someone else. Period.


This is just a thought. Some of you may not agree with me on this, but everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. I won’t hold that against you if you can return the favour to me. 🙂
