Here you go with today’s inspirational quote:
– Erykah Badu
It kinda reminds me of another quote by carl Jung –
“Thinking is difficult – that’s why most people judge”
To be honest, we all make a judgement about others for different reasons in life and some of them are really naive and necessary while some of them are sheer nasty. Like we have always professed, our thoughts and emotions are the ones which should drive us to a life of satisfaction and fulfilment rather than a life which leads to the petty challenges which hold us back rather than letting us go.
Judging others definition / Judging People Definition:
Quite simply, the definition of judging others is – to form an opinion or an estimation after careful consideration. In other words, we understand the other person in a manner as detailed as possible and then pass a judgement whether they are good or bad. I am not going to argue the semantics as to what constitutes what, but I am certainly going to pose an objection on our right to judge people and our capacities in understanding someone fully.
I mean each one of us have led a different life and I doubt if someone could actually understand the challenges I have gone through and the choices I have had to make and the situations I have faced. For someone living a completely different life than mine, I would wonder if he would even come close to experiencing what I have and the kind of emotions I have gone through. And above all of this, if someone sits in his fancy shoes and passes a judgement on me as to who I am as a person, I would naturally be enraged to the core and I would have a tough time forgiving him or her.
Why do we judge people:
I am not saying that we should not judge anyone at all. I mean how else do we know if someone is right for us or not? How else do we decide whether we let someone into our life or not? It is alright to make that judgement and say whether they fit in our plan of life and our scheme of things. We have every right to do that and we would certainly back your right for it.
But when it comes to judging people based on their actions and thinking what we would do if we were in their situation – well that’s where things go really wrong and berserk. We can never really do that can we? How can we expect or imagine to be in the emotional state of someone else and bring our moral rights or obligations or conscience to call someone else right or wrong. I mean we all have done our share of mistakes and we all love to correct ourselves and lead a life we are proud of.
And that’s the extent of our rights and obligations. The moment we step out and say that the entire world should or will respond like me, then I guess we are crossing our limits too and our rights as well. Cos judging someone good or bad is one of the easiest things to do, but truly understanding someone takes time. And if that person is that important to us, we better do it instead of trying to judge whether they are good or bad. People are never really that objective.
Well, this was our inspirational quote of the day – cos we all do sin differently and to put the same rules for all of us would surely be a blasphemy indeed :D.
