Notes To My Younger Self:
Everyone judges. You’ll be tempted to believe that judging is a defect of character, and at times, that could be true. Something to consider is that human beings were designed to be judgmental. By assessing, evaluating and weighing risks of people and situations you are in fact judging in a way that keeps you out of harms way. Judging can also be a way to weigh and realize personal preferences. So striving to completely remove all judgement from your brain, will not serve you. Instead of avoiding judgement, you may consider trying to avoid assumptions, since assumptions and generalizations are both pitfalls that lead to inappropriate judgements.

The ability to assess and judge is a healthy tool. Judgement can turn into a character defect if you use it to condemn, berate, disrespect, badmouth, or take inventory for your own agendas.
