On Being Judgmental A. I happen to meet a person and after a few words with him I say - you are a good person. He thanks me for that! I have known a person for a while and do not like some of his actions and I tell him this on his face. And he tells me why am I so judgmental? ( How come the person I praised thanked me and the person, I did not, thought that I am judgmental? Why being judgmental is always taken in a negative sense?) B. I am approached by some people and they want me to join their charity drive and I say - I shall mull it over. Am I being judgmental? C. I do not mix up easily with strangers in a social or business gathering. I want to first evaluate a person from his talks with others and or his body language and then take a call to strike a conversation. Am I being judgmental? I am trying to figure out if, people were judgmental in a positive or negative sense, will life be easy? I think, yes. Above all, we have been given the power of judging people or situations for our own good and the good of the people at large. We have courts and Judges judge the situation and give a Judgment. They are not called Judgmental. I AM JUDGMENTAL,THEREFORE, I AM!
