    Don't judge people you hardly know.
    You don't know what their day has been like.
    Don't judge.
    Don't judge someone who seems as if she's overreacting.
    You don't know if she's lost someone she loved dearly
    Or if her parents are getting a divorce
    Or fighting over nothing.
    Don't judge.

    Don't judge someone who's different.
    He's probably one of the nicest people you'll know.
    Or the funniest.
    Or the smartest.
    Take time to get to know people.
    Walk with them.
    Run with them.
    Share their triumphs and their sorrows.
    Maybe they don't dance through life as you thought.
    Don't judge.

    Judging people creates a lot of misunderstandings and
    makes you miss good chances to know nice people.

    Sometimes it's hard not to judge though you try not to.
    First glances or first meetings are generally based on judgements.
    I find myself sometimes passing judgements even though I hate that people do that to me.
    It's a tough cycle to break.

    I agree with everything you've written though. It's well said.

    Wise words as always Gentle Lady. I also think they apply to ourselves. I see many people here who are so understanding and non judgemental towards others but then are so hard on themselves. Love and best wishes to everyone.

    A truly insightful thread and an equally insightful post. I know myself that I try so hard to never judge another individual until they have had a chance to show their true colors. But I can so readily and easily judge myself and usually using what I think others must think of me as my guidelines. We really need to love ourselves and then others. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Gentlelady and Snowraven!!!
