WHERE DOES JUDGEMENT COME FROM?
1. A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING
The root of all ignorance is a lack of understanding. This is when we have an inability to put our self in the shoes of another. When we can’t do this, we generally tend to judge.
But does judgement really get us anywhere? We have all been at the end of someone else’s judgment of us. You know how that feels; the shame, feelings of inadequacy, guilt, self-doubt, self-loathing and our own inner judge joining forces to magnify what the judge has said about us.
When we judge ourselves or others, we generally do so out of a lack of knowledge. We judge from our stand point, without having any idea what it is like to be in that position.
No two situations are alike. No two people are alike.
How can we really say we would do something better given the circumstances? And not only is it those circumstances in that moment, it is everything in the life of that person up until that moment that causes somebody to act in the way that they do. And no two lives are the same.
