So the Rachel Finch thread got me thinking.....
The general sentiment was - we know nothing about the family dynamic or history so I can't judge. Fair point.
But when does it become okay to judge? Only if someone is doing something illegal? Whenever you disagree with something? Never? When something goes against your principles? When you have extensive experience in the same situation?
Where do you draw the line?
Also is it different to judge openly or inwardly. Eg I think I actually judge Rachel Finch, as it is my opinion that it is selfish what she is doing, but I wouldn't actually ever say she shouldn't be doing it or should do it my way.
So I guess what I'm saying is, to me it is human nature to judge, and I'm okay with people judging things, but in a way that doesn't make another feel like rubbish about themselves.
I mean surely those of us who would never do what Rachel Finch does, I think that means we automatically judge that as being something we don't agree with, and that's okay to judge and it is also okay to do so but follow it up with 'each to their own'.
Without judgement, I personally think there would never be any laws, morals would be set in stone and we would all have the same morals. But life isn't like that, so to me judgement is a necessary part of life, but it needs to be done in a way that is not hurtful to others.
So what does everyone think?
