Everybody judges *D&D* Poll Kelly&Coralie 1 child; Rochester, NY, United States 56012 posts

I get kinda sick of seeing "I don't judge people" on here. Cause every judges everyone else, even if they don't realize it.

I mean, you might catch yourself judging and try to correct yourself and "see the other side", but everyone has initial judgements


Thoughts?

Yes. If you have an opinion, you make a judgement, whether it be a positive one or a negative one

I have judgements, I don't generally verbalize them though.
I just think "Well she has had a few Snickers in her life." "She doesn't work and she has 2 kids must be on welfare" "Nice clothes, nice car and you just used your EBT card?" You really don't know what people are going through or have been through though, it could be something that just happened that got them there, or a disease or something.



I know people judge me because I look 16 and have a 3 and a half year old. I am 21 though. I think it is human nature.

Everyone judges everyone. I am sick of seeing "I don't judge" because that is bullshit.

It is human nature. Your BRAIN is designed to make these judgements. "Oh that is red, maybe it's hot" "Oh she has dark skin and black hair, maybe she is *Mexican*" or whatever.

Oh she is wearing flip flops and holey clothes in the dead of winter and looks like she is starving to death she probably doesn't have very much money.

I think that anyone who says they don't judge is lying through their teeth.



I admit that there are several things that I am really judgmental about, but I've learned to bite my tongue.

Anyone who says no is either lying or doesn't understand that they do it.



Do you avoid the ghetto when driving? Then you judge.
Do you avoid hitchhikers? Then you judge.



If you DIDN'T judge, you'd make a ton of shitty decisions.

I absolutely judge people.



However, I also try to see when I am judging, and do my best to step back from that and put myself in other peoples shoes, as much as I can.



Though, as always, everyone has those days or those things they just... judge away on. I'm no exception.

everyone judges, but that doesn't mean you have to be a b***h. You can keep your opinions to yourself, or share them tactfully.



Also, the older I get, the less I judge. The more experiences I have, the more I realize that circumstances and context have a huge impact on every choice that a person makes, and because I can't know everything, I judge a whole lot less than I did when I was a new, young mom.

I believe we all do it. It's human nature.

My favorite: locking the car door when you drive through sketchy areas.

I mean, I catch myself saying "I probably shouldn't judge" Or "I was in the situation and did x*x so I can't judge her on her choices"

But when people claim that they don't judge other people at all, it just makes me irate

and then I judge the f**k out of them

Everyone judges, however I think the whole "I don't judge" thing is coming from some people won't hold whatever it is against you, others will.
