I was/am a rather judgmental person. A lot of the judging I did in the privacy of my own mind, but some things I shared with family or close friends. Not on all things, but on a lot of things I saw right and wrong. I felt that we are too given to shades of gray and giving a pass for bad behavior in this culture of ours. I thought people have choices and they should stay the course and continue on the hard path of suffering if it was called for.
One of the areas I was judgmental about was divorce. Seriously, I thought marriage is hard, you just make it work. You are stuck once the vows are spoken. I believed and still believe that kids do better when raised by their parents all in one house.
But, now I am on the other path. It is not a journey I can share with most others. It is an attempt to heal and become the person God called me to be. I have become much less judgmental. I invite you, dear reader, to not judge the action of another unless you have walked a mile in their shoes.
