Consider for a second how judgmental you think you are...
You have full control over that tiny little voice in your head. I've also discovered that my self destructive behavior has a direct link to my judgment of myself and of other people. I had to unlearn this if I wanted to establish my authenticity in this world. I recently was able to pinpoint it back to memories of my grandparents as a child.
Don't get me wrong, it was not their fault at all. It was my fault for my interpretation, not recognizing it and creating an awareness about it. My grandparents grew up in different times, where knowledge and news was not as readily available as it is for our generation. They were close minded about the world around them by no fault of their own. They just didn't have access to the outside world. I picked up on this at a very young age, and of course, judged them.
Fast forward to current day, and my grandparents are getting old and at the end portion of their lives. What I realize and see from them, is that they are now having the time of their lives trying to unlearn what they believed to be true their whole lives. It's very humbling.
Something else to consider is how global the human race is now. I think we are starting to realize as intelligent people that borders are becoming harder to define and control. The internet has connected us all regardless of race, country, or government. We can now share ideas and thoughts with people from countries that we have never even visited. People are starting to mass together to stand up for what they believe in.
It's a renaissance of mankind. With everyone slowly coming together around the world, new ideas, cultures, and beliefs are being introduced to us at a rapid rate. Next time you see something on Facebook, Twitter, or even an article online that challenges your thoughts, do some research. Dig deep into other peoples thoughts and statements about an issue and you may see that your brain unravels just a bit. You have got to be non-judgmental though, in order for this to have full effect.
Also, remember that if you are uncomfortable with changing your viewpoint on a certain topic, that's fine. You create the world around you by just your thoughts. You have more control than you will ever realize. With that being said, others have control of their lives as well. So who are we to judge what's going on in other peoples minds? The only thing you will ever need to focus on is becoming a more authentic version of yourself.
When you can unlearn bad habits and judgments you will start to see a whole new world. The best part is, YOU created it and can change it at any time. Take advantage of the world we live in right now. It's so beautiful. I don't want you to click away from this post thinking that you should change everything you believe in. That's probably impossible. But I think you'd be surprised at the results if you took about 5% of your learned behavior, and challenged it.
Don't put yourself in other peoples shoes. Just allow them to be, and if you don't agree, no harm. You need to be worrying about yourself anyways. So get out of habit, alter your view, and enjoy new 'spins' on life. They really are a lot of fun.
