I keep seeing things that say something like this: “Don’t judge me until you have gone through what I am going through.” I guess I understand the thought, and I would like to propose a new one: “Don’t judge. Period.” Really. I think it is admirable to “walk someone else’s walk” to try to understand what they are going through. And there is still no reason to judge. I know how hard it is to not judge others; it is something that I strive for every day, and I don’t always succeed. And I will continue to try.
