So there are always going to be things that happen in our lives where other people just don't understand. They'll judge you, they'll question your sanity, they'll even stop talking to you / being friends with you.
Now...my question is WHY? I don't understand why we all have to judge one another, why we have to question each other's decisions. Why we can't be KIND to one another, always. Even when we don't fully understand what's going on in each other's lives.
Let me be really blunt for a second. Nobody, and I mean nobody, has any idea what's going on in other people's lives. We see what others post on social media, we see and hear what people want us to, but do we really know what's going on? We sit back and judge...we think we know what's best for these people, but how can we possibly know what's best for someone else in THEIR lives?
The biggest point I have from this post is to be kind to one another! Always. We have no idea what's going on in each other's lives and sometimes a kind word, a hug, just being there and understanding is the best thing we can do for each other.
The judgment, the stares, the talking behind one another's backs. Is that what we've come to? Is that what God would want from us?
I'll admit...I used to be incredibly judgmental. I thought I knew best for everyone. Seriously...like I could possibly know what was best for everyone else in their own lives. I hardly know what's best for me sometimes!
When I realized that people have ZERO idea what goes on behind closed doors at my own house and in my relationships, it opened my eyes to the fact that I have ZERO idea what goes on behind closed doors at their house and in their relationships. It's funny how that works, huh?
I try my hardest to be understanding and to let other people live their own lives. Whatever decision they make in their lives is what's best for them. And I respect that.
All I ask in return is that my decisions, even if they aren't understood, that they are respected. Because let's be real, they are MY decisions. Allow me to live my life the way that is best for me, and I'll return the same respect to you. It really is that simple.
But somewhere along the way, that's gotten all mixed up. Instead, we judge one another, we like to think we know what's best for other people, and we think we are better than everyone else. When is that going to change?
Honest answer...it's going to change when WE make the conscious effort to STOP judging one another. To let others live their lives, unapologetically and without question.
Like the picture says, a good place to start is to stay humble, work hard, and be kind. It starts with each of us. So what do you say? Let's start a change! Let's get back to being KIND to one another!
I hope y'all have an amazing week! And that you are KIND to one another, always!
With love and wellness,
