People are always going to judge, no matter what we say or do, nothing can change that fact. But if we look back over years the way in which we formulate these judgments of others has changed drastically.
Way, way back in the middle ages one would pass a judgment on another depending on age, social status, religion and gender. We look back and we think to ourselves, how selfish a society that judges based on these simple aspects of everyday life. But look at today’s society.
Today, we are no different. We claim to be a non-judgmental society. Non sexist, racist, bias… you name it, we claim it. But really, we aren’t. We are bias. We are mildly sexist. We are racist. Even if we don’t know it. It’s subconscious.
But a coming trend emerging in today’s society is the judgment of character. Based on the things we have done. Like sex, drugs, alcohol, marriage, church attendance, university. But within this judgement such double standards occur.
People judge us more so even for the mistakes we make. This allegedly defines us and our personality and being. If we stuff up in our ‘perfect’ lives even once, people turn their backs, they shun… because your accidents make you a bad person. They are who you are.
Who we are is not who we are as a person, but the mistakes we make. Surely this is wrong?
