Is it judging if you judge someone for judging someone? Is that premissable judging?

Ahh the old catch 22.

I would say not because by judging them all you are doing is mitigating their initial judging so it all comes out even in the end happy.gif

I think all judging is not only permissible - it's essential... it's how we make sense of events (and people) and measure them against others we have experienced so that we can develop an appropriate response to them.

Our judgements change over time as we gain more life experience.

I think the issue is sharing your judgements or acting on them when you haven't had enough life experience to make the response an appropriate one. Sometimes it is important to reserve our opinions or actions when we know that we don't have enough life experience to make an informed decision. Not passing judgement is also a judgement call.

Unfortunately, many times people don't recognise when to, and when not to.

If you're passing judgement on someone for making an erroneous judgement about someone else, it might be a good idea to step back and consider whether the person making the first judgement just needs a bit of additional life experience. Education all the way, I say!

I have no issue with any of that judgement except the judginess about judgement.

I think the point is to judge with the same compassion, understanding and mercy with which you would like to be judged.

I judge you for not knowing that it's fine to judge people for judging others.

I try not to judge but I do often judge people who are judging so I guess that makes me judgemental.

Best sentence ever and if anyone judges otherwise I reserve the right to judge them wink.gif

It's always ok to judge when somebody uses the phrase "Judgey McJudge". I think very poorly of people who say/ think/ live this phrase.

What was the question again? unsure.gif

What if the person you are judging for judging someone else, works out you are judging them and judges you for being judgemental?

Is that allowable? Or does it just make your ears bleed?

And found wanting.
