I came across this quote Dont judge someone just because they sin differently than you - Made me think how true that statement is. We normally judge people when they go wrong little realising that we do it all the time , please add your thoughts on the subject

Everyone of us will do something that is wrong in different perspectives, whether it is intentional or not. The right thing to do in a certain time frame may not be that right in another time frame. It is a fact that we will always have our own opinions and impressions from what we see or understand (or misunderstand). We just have to remember that we don't judge people too quickly. We should always grant the benefit of doubt to the people that we are not really familiar with. To blame others for something they do which we ourselves are also doing is indeed pathetic and laughable. Some people can jump the queue with the ease of mind and yet when someone cuts in the front of that person, he/she reacts violently. We must learn to be patient and always have a thought for other people. We don't need to judge just because of a thing or two. Some people may not be that perfect in some aspects but can be a role model in another.

If all of us could just always spare a thought for others under whatever circumstances, I think we will all be living in a better world. No one is perfect but some people are just too rude and inconsiderate. I don't want to sound judgmental now although I do have my own opinions on everything - I will always keep my thoughts to myself until I feel the time is right

@jkct02 I agree and we do form opinions about people based on our interactions with them, some of which may change with time but I have noticed that many a times first impressions, often do turn out be the right impressions..

I think that judging others is okay as long as it is honest and based on your personal impressions of the respective person. However, if that judgement is based on or influenced by what others tell you about that person it becomes worthless. Also, judgements can be wrong. So it's necessary to be careful when judging. I think there's a similarity to voting. If you vote for someone based on your own impressions of that person that's fine. If you vote just because others vote the same way it's meaningless.

@stk40m True, one has to be careful before judging people ...however, I see people get carried away by what others say rather than judge and form an opinion for themselves, as you say even that may not be final since it is not easy to judge people based on any one experience !

Hello I am agree with it. it is not necessary that every one coinside with us. Views on every topic may be different. If some one views is differ from us it does not mean that he/she is wrong. We must be regards others views.

I agree we need to see different points of views without being judgmental...

Yes, I agree into that. We must not judge that person directly. We must see and judge ourselves first before we judge someone. It is a slap in our face if we judge someone but then we, ourselves do not judge our own. All human are imperfect and no one has the right to judge anybody.

@kokomo, It is very rare for a person to judge himself or herself because most of us are busy picking holes elsewhere .I guess a bit of self analysis always helps to know yourself better ! thanks for the feedback ..

hi, We judge ourselves by what we are capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have done. We should not judge in the first meeting. We should change our vision and the others would appear accordingly. We should try to change ourselves first. we should think simple and live simple. Don't be jealous of anyone.

Hello. I am not a judging a person but I try to understand why they do such things in their lives even they know that it is not good and it is not . I do not judge others because I dont want to be judged too.

well we should never judge any one it is just right of us to do so we all have a past of some kind good or bad we all have to learn that we just need to learn to look away unless you want to be judged yourself

Hi blackrusty, thanks a lot for your response Most people take pleasure in being judgmental of others deeds little realising that they too would be at the receiving end some day ..

the one thing to always remember is treat people the way you want to be treated and if not karma will get you every time

What is normal for one person might be something bad to another. Everyone has a different set of morals, and everyone has a different history. At times, it can be hard to empathise with people we think are behaving badly, but it is still something to keep in mind. Everyone has a different story.

Hi Idealist, thanks a lot for your response I agree that sometimes we may never agree with another persons behavior or views , and at such times it is better to get to know the complete picture before coming to any conclusion rather than make any rash judgments - have a great day

It is true and you should always get in touch with them personally to know about them and also understand their behavior

Hi natalie, sometimes in life we tend to get influenced by our previous experiences and also other peoples words and make judgments which is very wrong...unless we analyse and study a person we should never pass any judgments about others - thanks a lot for sharing your views, have a nice day

I don't really have anything to add except that it is very true! We all sin, maybe in different ways but we all make mistakes since not one of us are perfect in this world. If your judging someone else for what their doing then you should look in the mirror at your own imperfections as well...

I agree with you totally since people are the same anywhere in the world. We all make mistakes , learn through them and sometimes even make the some mistakes again and again,,,but it is better to leave people alone to fend for themselves instead of putting them down - all the best and have a wonderful week ahead !

This is one of my favorite quotes.... I end up using it a lot with my mother when discussing gay marriage and abortion and things of the like, but really can be used for just about anything.

Thats true, some of those wise quotes really make you think, we get so caught up with everyday things that at times we tend to appreciate the finer points of life and about people as well! all the best and have a wonderful weekend
