Each of us brings something alive in the world that no one else can. There is a profound necessity at the heart of individuality. When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here, you endeavor to live a life that is generous and worthy of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.
– John O’Donohue
You may choose your word like a connoisseur,
And polish it up with art,
But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays,
Is the word that comes from the heart.

If you judge people, you have no time to love them. ~Mother Teresa
Instead of unconditionally accepting people for who they are, why do we judge them?
There are many reasons we all fall into this trap. Let us look at just a few. We might judge others because:
-We want to hurt them or get them back.
-They are different from us.
-They do not agree with us.
-We do not like them.
-They hurt us or offended us.
-We feel rejected, accused, or insulted.
-We expect or look for the worst in them.
-We are angry at them.
