Love People, Don't Judge

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Water Buffalo BikeSo often, especially on social media commenting, Facebook, blogging, Twitter, news articles, people are ATTACKING others with hiding behind their keyboards for people being different from them. To me it is the height of being immature. Different is just what people tend to be. I would encourage you to

Love People, Don't Judge.

It is a more kind based approach. We have different life and spiritual journeys. Different cultures, different experiences. SURE, call out something evil if you see THAT, but most things are not on that scale. People are entitled to different values and beliefs. Chill. Just LOVE and let the judging be left up to a higher power.

Perfect. Thank you! I've never understood why people do what they do in some instances. Perhaps they're just having a bad day!

Gary - you are right on with this post. I couldn't agree more. This is not the place to make that type of commentary. Engage and build relationships instead.

Those cowards that lurk and can't wait to spread their hatred are so upsetting. It really bothers me when I see this behavior.

Gary, Even the higher power, I believe, does not judge.  We are all connected and of the same source. If we beat a different drum ... so be it. When we truly love our self, then we can truly love others.  That is an amazing photo.

Hi Gary,

Great post! I couldn't agree with you more. Who are we to judge?!

Totally agree with the love don't judge theme. I tend to think that folks with poor coping mechanisms might be more prone to lash out at others. Ironically, they are most likely hurting themselves too as such behaviors can lead to making bad choices and experiencing the pain inherent in those bad choices. It's just a working hypothesis. Don't have any proof though. Thanks for the thought-provoking post Gary.

I see a lot of snarkiness on social media from people who wouldn't ever say those things in person. I also see people who say something, and then when called on it, say, "Oh, that's not what I meant" and make up something that isn't even in the same ballpark as what they originally said. Lately I've been a bit tired of the social media thing - too bad it's a necessary tool now.

The worst kind of people is those who brag how good they are. Often they find out the ones(realtors and brokers) they look down and they do not brag are Ivy league phds, and attorneys. In my area most professionals carry several licenses. Loan, broker, contractor, as well as professional engineers.  People who are judgemental are often not well liked.....
