Judgments


“I don’t have the patience for playing games on the computer, it is such a waste of time.”  A direct quote from a good friend of mine who watches TV around the clock. 

“I can’t believe how many people are on FB, don’t they have anything better to do?”  Another quote from a friend who uses every free minute to exercise.

We all seem to be quick to judge other people’s hobbies, habits and passions.  A friend defends her smoking, yet is all over people who drink.  Another says alcohol is bad yet pops ‘feel good pills’.

I find this interesting and yes, somewhat amusing.  Perhaps by critiquing other people’s choices and flaws it takes away from looking at and into ourselves.

This morning I was watching a program that talked about relationships and when to get out.  The one thing I took from this was that other people are not responsible for making us happy.  That is our job.

How are you doing in the happy department?  Perhaps we should all hold a mirror up to ourselves more often, instead of judging others.
