“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path. ” — Paulo Coehlo
It is very easy to judge people and situation on what it appears from outside, but that perception of a situation or a person might not be genuine, it is human tendency that we tend to believe what we see, and specially when it is inclined towards something negative, something suspicious.
When we generalize and judge people quickly without taking ample time, we’ve chosen a shortcut. It’s superficial of us, and a lack of wisdom . We overlook the possibilities, we just Judge, we pass a judgement without knowing the truth.
There was a lady staying in my society having a new born baby, she hardly use to talk with anybody around, people said she never cooked, she did not even had proper utensils in her house, what kind of a lady she is blah blah…and several statements were made on her way of living..it was just a normal evening when I coincidentally met her on my way to gym, just in a few minutes of conversation I came across something so significant about her which literally gave me a shook inside. This lady was half paralyzed and had been bed ridden for years and as now she was much stable she conceived, after several years of her marriage and was struggling hard to manage her life, her right hand was still affected.. by this few minutes of passing conversation,all the judgement, statements people made about her just vanished, and I realized how others perceive the situation and spread the judgement passed by them based on their limited understanding of the situation and others just wear their eyes to see the world and believe it.When we judge others, we do not define them, we define ourselves.
We easily believe others, we easily judge people based on how they appear from outside, or how they pretend to appear.. But you never know what the person is actually from inside, what he or she has been through in their life. Some are judged by their past mistakes, some are judged by their present acts, some on the basis of their lifestyle, some on the basis of there way of dressing up..we just cannot judge people, We are more than the bodies we inhabit, they’re little more than clothes, and yet we judge so much by them.
Let’s stop judging others, and relieve them of the heavy burden they are carrying on their shoulders because of us— Anonymous.
