Today’s is another New Resolution Friday. After No More Lies, today I have decided to stop Judging the Ones who Judge.
It seems a bit complicated. I explain myself.
When I say I am an open-minded person who don’t judge, I lie. I am not prefect but I try to be better. It is a long and hard path but it is the one I have chosen. It doesn’t mean I won’t do anymore mistake, but I will certainly try to make less.
As an open minded person, I think the ones that are narrow-minded are kind of stupid , old fashioned people. How can you be so close in a world like the one we are living in now? Am I not judgmental by saying this?
I am. And turning the idea in my head for a while I came to the conclusion – people judge because they are afraid. They are afraid because they don’t know.
Let’s take the idea that some people think “All Muslim are terrorists“. They don’t know, they have never talked to any Muslim man or woman. They only remember the 9/11 and Iran elections issues.
Another one – “All Inter-cultural Marriages are falling”. They only remember the movie “Never without my Daughter” and the book “Sold”. In parents mind, their daughter and grandchildren will live in the middle of the desert, without seeing a ray of light for the rest of their lives.
So what’s to be done? To continue judging them or to help them?
Here is the idea, we are all passionate about something, we all know a bit more than others on one or more subjects, on one special aspect of our life.
We can make a difference. Even a tiny one can make great changes
We can teach people what we know, help them see things from a different angle, open their eyes that they can find out what makes sense to them or not. And after it is their choice to change their point of view or not.
But I bet they would.
Whatever you know, whatever you learn, go out and say it loud, find somebody who don’t know and chat.
If we all do this with our family, friends, neighbours, in our cities, capitals, in our college, place of work, on our blogs or websites, we can change the World.
Love is what makes our world go round.
Let’s live it, Let’s share it.
