who am i not to judge?

Often when one is labeled with the term “judgmental”, it carries a negative connotation…and of course I strongly disagree with that notation.

By definition, judgment means the ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions”.  So I ask you, how can you determine what you want out of life without making some type of judgment?  By default, every time you say  ”yes” to something, you’re saying “no” to something else…and who’s better than you to determine which one is best for you?

Now what I strongly disagree with is when one condemns once a judgment is made.  Regardless of how much someone believes in what they believe in, it doesn’t automatically mean that those who don’t are wrong and some type of punishment is now required.  Your personal beliefs should be just that…YOUR personal beliefs…and the only person who should face consequences for not living up to them is YOU!

I never quite understood why so many people require outside validation on their belief system.  Especially since there’s no one who’s ever above doing something that someone else thinks is a total waste of time.  It’s funny as I wrote that sentence, I wondered if I was wasting my time in writing this…LOL!

In all seriousness, in my life time, I’ve never known a successful person who wasn’t judgmental…and likewise, I’ve never known an unsuccessful person who was…THINK ABOUT IT!!!
