So aggravated, I just had this whole post written, but since they changed the format of the website again, the cancel button got clicked instead of submit. And it cancels with no second warning....hate the new setup!!!! Anyways, here goes again...in short form now I guess.
So everyone's always getting mad b/c other people are "judging". It seems that many moms seem to equate what they call "judging" with getting in a strangers face and telling them off.
While I have very strong opinions towards certain things, I have never once said one word to a stranger just b/c I disagreed with what they were doing. I keep it to myself, share it with my husband or friends, or will talk about it here (a forum specifically meant to be met with opposition)...but the other mother never knows that I disagree with her.
I fully believe as human beings we are wired to see something, and have an opinion on it based on our own experiences and thoughts. I just find it very hard to believe that someone can say they walk through their day totally emotionless as to what they see in front of them. We are individuals, we are not meant to all agree with what other people do. We are our own person, and therefore have different opinions about things...and there is nothing wrong with that.
I have seen a few others make posts that they also believe that everyone judges, and many posts that say they don't think anyone should. So just curious as to what people think in terms of this topic, how "judging" is presented in the many different conversations, whether it's human nature or just spiteful behavior etc.
