Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a nice day. I’m here with a question about being judgemental.
I was recently told by my friend (the same one discussed here: forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=843750) that I’m too judgemental. She told me that I’m unaccepting of people’s entireties and I reject their ways. I only stick to what I believe is right and just and don’t take any contradiction.
Now I don’t want to be judgemental, mostly because of what the Bible says. But really, I don’t know what it means to judge others. What I assume as being judgemental is right above, but I was hoping to create this thread to clarify.
My friend is very accepting of others; thus she has a sort of “do what you want, just as long as you don’t set fire to the building” sort of attitude. From what I can see, she’s indirectly saying I should adopt an attitude similar, at the least, to this one. I told her that I don’t really know what being judgemental means, and she, in a nutshell, told me this. She told me I should simply stop rejecting other people and their ways, even if it bothers me. I should stop trying to run away from them.
As I said, all I’m looking to do is find out what it means to judge others. I want to be accepting of others, but I don’t know where the limit is. I don’t even know whether or not it’s a bad thing to be accepting. I’m pretty confused. :shrug:
All help with this matter is appreciated. Thank you everyone!
