‘J is for Judgement | Positive & Inspired Living A to Z’
Mother Teresa once said, “If you judge people, you have no time to love them”. We all must have heard this saying several times, but putting it to practice is, well, another thing all-together.
Today, I am sharing one of my favorite stories on judgement. Do read it all the way through and share it with the ones you love. It makes a compelling case against judging people without knowing them.
The 24 year old boy – Anonymous
A few years ago, a 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted… “Dad, look the trees are going behind us!”
As his Dad smiled, a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, when suddenly he again exclaimed… “Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man… “Why don’t you take your son to see a good doctor?”
The old man smiled and said… “I did and we are just coming from the hospital. My son was blind from birth and he just got his eyesight today.”
*Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.*
None of us can claim to be totally non-judgmental beings (not me for sure). We all have our prejudices and pre-conceived notions. However, we can try to not let our biases control our words and our actions. Don’t you think?
