    How to be nonjudgmental?
    (The topic was once discussed on July 30, 2016)

    No one wants to be called “judgmental” or “overly critical in an unhelpful way”, but it is so easy for us to fall into that trap. Just look around and almost everything can become the target of our judgment: body shape, gender, marital status, socioeconomic status, religion, passion, hobbies and so on. As humans, we tend to look for what is wrong with people, especially those who have qualities we would love to have. It can feel like a relief to know that “some gorgeous ones” seem to be less perfect than us. Such an opportunity may also make us feel superior and more secure about ourselves. However, researches have shown judging and criticizing people can be harmful to “the critics”. Specifically, judgmental thoughts can lead to a high level of depression, anxiety and stress-related health problems because our judgment usually tightly clings to our dissatisfaction. In fact, what we criticize in others tends to reflect what we do not like about ourselves. Given all this, it is not easy to be nonjudgmental when the world seems so wrong, and we cannot help but pronounce our judgment.
     
    Questions for discussion:
    1. Think about people who annoy you in some way (a man wearing high heels or a woman smoking, etc.). Can you let them be the way they are without desiring them to be otherwise?
    2. What is the difference between being critical and being judgmental? How do you know you are making a constructive criticism, not a problematic judgment?
    3. How do you respond when someone else is judging you?
    4. What should we do to avoid being judgmental?
     
     

     Enjoy and have a fruitful discussion!
