When is an opinion of a situation judgment?

Hmmm...That's a tough one. It seems that there is such a fine line between opinion and judgement. Maybe the answer to the question lies in what causes you to have the opinion you do...Is it because you have facts to back up what you are saying or is it some personal feeling that really isn't justified by anything but emotion? I always try to deal in facts, not opinions, although we all have them..There's no getting around it. I would examine my reasons for disagreeing with a person to see what my motivation is and if it is valid. The most important thing to remember is that everyone has the right to think and feel however they want. You shouldn't base your opinion on the person as a whole because you disagree with them. That would definitely be judgement. If you think you are better than someone else because you hold a certain opinion that they don't, and if you belittle them or treat them differently because of it then that is judgement. Otherwise, I think it's just an opinion. As a whole we should learn not to take it so personally when people disagree with us.
