Each and everyone of us have "Stuff" that is going on in our lives. Some of this "Stuff" we keep to ourselves, and we don't talk to others about.
Humans are always watching others and if someone does something we don't approve off our default is to judge it through the "lens of our life".
Unfortunately, by doing so we are not respecting others. Most of the time we have NO CLUE what others might be going through in life and yet, we are still very quick to judge them
We would be wise to instead, take a step back and ask themselves, why does this matter to me anyway? For the most part, what other people do in their lives is none of our business and really shouldn't matter to us......and yet it often does.
As already mentioned, we all have "Stuff" going on in our lives, and before we judge others it would serve us well to into consideration that others ALSO have "Stuff" going on in their lives.
If someone else's behaviour is not negatively impacting your life, let it go, there is no need to judge them, because truthfully, you have NO CLUE what they are going through and how they are feeling.
Do onto others, as you would have done onto you is a good rule to follow here.
Live your life with compassion towards others and you will begin to change your lens of perception and you will bring more peacefulness into your life because you are not judging others.
