Remember that common saying, "Never judge a book by its cover."
When can you judge a book, then? Once you finish reading it.
Apparently, judging people comes from our human instincts (and human nature). It is a habit as well.
Heck, I enjoy people-watching as I judge them. (Call myself a jerk, then. Every day, I believe everybody judges at least one stranger. It is impossible to avoid it.)
Why do I judge people?
It gives me confidence, but it is the "sore loser" way. (Putting people down makes me better.) Also, it is entertaining. I am insecure, then.
I do not like the person's choice. For instance, I see a couple walking together. I shook my head. Why, so? I see a guy wearing his pajamas, while his lady has a gorgeous dress on. He has no style. She took the time to look pretty for him. (I assumed that he did not put in the time and effort.)
I am jealous. For instance, I see a pretty lady with an average-looking man. Why is she with that dude? She can find somebody better, like myself.
Therefore, I am not completely (100%) happy with myself, then.
Enough with the judging people part. (Go ahead, and judge me.)
How to stop myself from judging others?
-Control my thoughts
-Stop judging myself. (Do not be too harsh on myself)
-Remind myself how its like to be judged
-Only centralize my own life
-Tell myself this quote, "You can't say what you don't know." (From James Franco movie, "City By The Sea.)
