General Chit-Chat (non-political talk)
Are we too often, quick to judge?

A young couple moved into a new house.

The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging the washing outside.

"That laundry is not very clean; she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better soap powder.

Her husband looked on, remaining silent.

Every time her neighbor hung her washing out to dry, the young woman made the same comments.

A month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, "Look, she’s finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?"

The husband replied, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life… What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.

So don’t be too quick to judge others, especially if your perspective of life is clouded by anger, jealousy, negativity or unfulfilled desires.

"Judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are." 💯 Love this! 😊

Right on that. One who analyzes the situation/person and makes a determination based on that and common sense reveals that person to be discerning and intelligent. One must make judgements in life - life depends on it.

A good example: Would you trust your 10-year-old daughter with this person?

Even she has 'judged' that would not be a good idea.

Thank you, C-L.

Unfortunately, on OPP, non-partisan threads/comments often get partisan rebuttals/putdowns.

That's why they have the "General Chit-Chat" section.

Yep. There are things in life that transcend politics which is the religion of the time. True religion is the bailiwick of the eternal and are far more important.

This is the General Chit-Chat section, and my thread topic was not political in nature.

That's okay. It happens occasionally to many of us.
