In this post I will write about something that I think every human being does. We are a thinking creature and thereby we make up our mind when we meet others or when we see them on television. I would say that we tend to like people that acts according to our standards and if there is a person that acts in a different way than the norms in the society we quickly judge that person.
These norms in the society might tell us that you should not get pregnant too early, take education and so on. We tend to try to dictate how people live their lives and if they cross the line of what is acceptable according to the norms we judge very quickly. If we are honest with ourselves I think that everyone who is reading this post including me the writer have judged someone based on their actions, clothing and so on. It comes very natural for us to do so and it is very convenient to agree with a person who is judging another person in social gatherings and so on.
It is very easy to judge others when your life is at its best or if you are just an average person. There is a Norwegian saying that I like very much and that is “glasshus” which means a house of glass. Our lives reflect a house of glass because we never know when we are about to make a mistake and we would not liked to be judged, however, we keep on judging others. I think it is sad and despite being guilty in judging others I wish that the world would not be in that way.
Who am I to judge another person as long as he/she obey the law and do no harm to others. Why cannot everyone focus on themselves instead of having so many opinions about how others live their lives. You and I we have no right to decide for others and we should accept their way of living their lives. I have always bad consciousness after having judged another person and I tell myself that I will never do it again but it comes sort of naturally to do it despite that I know that it is wrong.
I think that the media should put more emphasis on this topic. Despite that we are living in a world where we have more tolerance towards other people like their sexual orientation etc we have not reached our goal yet and this is an area where everyone has to improve. Off course there are some that judge more frequently than others but I don’t think that anyone in this world is perfect when it comes to judging others.
I have improved when it comes to judging others because I have faced this glass of house myself. I have been a judgemental person before and I liked to think that I was kind of better than others. I had success in my life and earned money until one day where I collapsed and things went very wrong in my life. Then I started to feel the judgement that others had about me and it was horrible to go through it. Now I have fought my way back again and I keep getting stronger everyday. I have focused on not judging others after this happening in my life because now I know how it feels to be the person that everybody judge. If you judge others frequently I think that you should think about what you are doing since it can affect people very badly. Like I sad no one is perfect but we all can improve…
