Judge not. Assume nothing. We don’t really know what is going on about any situation in someone’s life. On top of which sometimes that person is already giving themselves a hard time.
I am finally learning and understanding to be gentle with me. Lord knows how often I feel negative and act on those negative emotions. There are times when I’ve been judgmental and unkind.
I thought that I had failed…was a failure. I was saying “how could I?” …to the backdrop of the external chorus “how could you?”
I’m learning it’s not a failure…it’s called being human. No one is above that vulnerability… yet if you think you are…go ahead and cast the first stone.
