Today I learned that the more you judge people, the angrier you will get. And sometimes getting and staying angry is a colossal waste of time and energy.
Everybody deserves to be accepted just as they are. Acceptance does not mean approval at all. It simply means that you are willing to let go of your judgement regarding how you think that person should be or act. You can still disagree with their behavior or their choices without rejecting the person.
Hardly anybody ever improves behavior because he or she felt rejected, condemned, judged, criticized or hated. Only love has the power to inspire men and women to change. We need to be willing to look beyond the mistakes and love the individual.
This I learned today.
