I know that a lot of people say that it is wrong to judge someone before you actually know them, but you have to admit that we all have done it. I know I have had my share of times when I first saw someone and had a judgment of them before I actually knew the person. Then once I got to know them, they were totally different then what I thought and I felt bad for judging them. Everyone always say that they are not judgmental but when they go to think about it, they have judged atleast one person even if there were no bad intentions in doing it. So do you think judging is a bad thing or a natural thing. I think its a natural thing. No matter how much you try not to do it, you are always going to judge someone.

i think judging comes naturally. its basically ones person's way of letting out what they thinks of what they see.. as long as it wont destroy somebody.. and wont cause rumors. its ok..

Yes! I see what you are saying. Its a very natural thing you can't really control. Your judging even whenyou think your not

yeah because the more you keep youre thoughts in your head the more risk youre at.. if you will tell what you think of the person directly, the person can change immediately what you dont like about them

I wasnt that bad as long we know how to judge fairly. What is bad is the fact that we judge someone in an unfair manner. Which means being too judgmental. Judging simply means forming an opinion about something or someone. There is nothing wrong about it as long as we wont say things that werent true about what we are judging. Some exaggerates an opinion.
