I’ve noticed that a lot of people judge each other especially teens. To be honest, I don’t really know why people do this, do we gain anything from it? The only reason I can think of is it that when we judge people we assume the better looking people can achieve more and are just overall better people. In actual fact, by doing this we are normally wrong but because it is a habit, we cannot get out of it. There are so many stereotypes that we often base our judgements on that person’s specific stereotype.
Unfortunately, some people always judge and can never get out of the ‘routine’. It doesn’t help you in life so if you think you are a judgmental person then you need to get out of that habit because it isn’t going to impact you in a good way. I’ve recognised that a lot of people in my school judge each other and this often causes a lot arguments. Even after these arguments happen, the people still decide to do what they do. I think even after multiple times of having arguments with people won’t open their eyes to what they do, something big would have to happen for them to realise what they do.
Judging has a bad outcome and that is missing some people with amazing qualities. Just imagine if you are criticising a new person that joins your school, you don’t have a clue about who they are or their personality. You may judge them on their name, race, religion, looks or something else but the point you are missing is that person is a loyal, trustworthy and fun persona and because of your judgemental nature, you have missed a great friend and possibly a life long best friend. Before you ever judge someone, put yourself into their shoes, if you were new somewhere or looking for a new group of friends etc would you want to be judged on your looks or past decisions. If you had ever made a bad decision in your past and you were judged for that, would you ever get anywhere in life?
I don’t know if I have ever been judged by others but I know friends that have been by other people. I can tell you that being judged isn’t the best feeling in the world and it consistently feels like that you are being overlooked by someone else. I can’t even imagine feeling like this, walking into school or your job area and feeling like that a specific group of people are always talking about you. If a group of people are criticising you, it’s probably because they are jealous of something you have or can do. You should be reassured that people aren’t judging you but that they are envying you because that lets you know you are doing well with your life and that you pursue a living that people envy.
When you try to find new friends or become part of a new friendship group, the people should accept you even if you have something wrong in your past. I can assure you that all of the people in that group have done something wrong, you shouldn’t worry about your past because that is in the PAST and if bad things have happened then they should be forgotten like everyone else has forgotten their bad past. If the people in that group are judging you then they aren’t the right people to make friends with.
If you haven’t seen this film, Beauty and The Beast, then you need to watch it. If you have seen the film then you know that this picture perfecting represents why you shouldn’t judge people. Under everyone’s looks, they could have the best personality without you realising but you have to get to know them before you judge them.
