Religion and Judgmentalism

I wanted to make Judgmental noun sound like Fundamentalism. That’s how that title happened.

I don’t think religion is always fundamentalist, but it sure can be.

As an outsider watching someone else “rebel,” I never thought the “rebel” had compunction.

But now that I’m in the “rebel” seat, I know a “rebel” can have compunction.

As a judgmental person, who has felt higher and mightier than others at a place to judge them in the past, I am now paying for my previous judgments.

It burns bad.

And I wonder: If I hadn’t been so judgmental of others who didn’t do as expected in the past, would I be so hard on myself now when I am veering off to a different path; would I feel their looks and glares as harshly?

I like to think of myself as a nice person. Which fortunately I actually am.

But judgment and criticism are no stranger to me.

And it sucks to be on the other end of it.

So, from now on, I’m trying to be more accepting toward others and not jump to conclusions or make assumptions.

Cuz I really have no clue.

No clue what they’re going through.

No clue what they’ve been through.

And that is that.

Don’t judge until you’ve been in their shoes…Step Wisely.
