I make it my business not to judge others, their decisions, or situations. I am like this for several reasons, but here are a few.
- I can hyposthesize why it is what it is, but I’ll never truly know because most likely I havent been where someone has been.
- If by chance I have been where they been or close to it, I’ve come to acknowledge that we’re all predisposed from birth to handle things differently
- Whose to say one day that I will not be in those same shoes, or maybe a similar pair, if that came to be I wouldn’t want some one to judge me.
Now does that excuse people to act certain ways, HELL no! Why, because I know from experience your past does not determine your future. It gets to a certain point where a person needs to address the situation and get it off their chest or build a bridge and get the hell over it. That’s a whole other conversation.
What I’m saying is I won’t judge or nitpick. You may hear me say “I just don’t understand” or “to each its own”, but not much more.
I’ve come to the conclusion that we all have our own lives to live. No one of us should feel so righteous or arrogant that we feel the need to dictate the lives of others. A person who feels they know, done, and seen everything is a person incapable of growth and experiencing new things.
Even more importantly, we all have to deal with the consequences of our decisions good, bad, or indifferent. So if you are okay with the life you’ve molded for yourself, who am I to say you deserve, or even need more/better.
I’ve decided that a person is only worthy of eating the fruits of their labors, not MINE.
