“Don’t Judge Me”
We see this phrase alot now-a-days especially since social media is a part of our daily routine while using witty hashtags. However, it’s growing increasingly irrelevant as people tend to use this term to defend their personal feelings and insecurities, rather than standing on the freedom of opinion. If someone is truly “judging” you by definition it means to carefully consider or form an opinion on something. It’s only if the persons attempt to judge is completely wrong that it becomes a reason for you to use the appropriate hashtag #dontjudgeme. The only way to determine if their judgement is accurate is this….you have to carefully consider if they are correct. Don’t go into defense mode right away unless it is way off target. Be totally honest with yourself. Ask yourself, is the statement made referring to you true or false? For example, some have found the statement, “Bruce Jenner is a man at the end of the day.” offensive. Unfortunately some can’t see past personal hurts and their personal opinion to grasp this is indeed a true statement. He is indeed a man transformed into a woman by man….not genetics. Now if I said Bruce Jenner looks stupid as a woman, that is my personal opinion that can be argued. As humans, we are not the best judges of one another. God himself is a righteous judge. He looks beyond personal views and ideologies and sees beneath the surface. Should we choose to judge, we should choose to consult the almighty creator. His wisdom goes beyond human understanding. God bless!
