I wonder… is it colder up there? Is the air thinner? Harder to breath, maybe?
How does it feel sitting in that judgment seat?
🙂 Trust me. I can answer those questions myself because I’ve sat in that seat many times in my life. Probably several this week. And even a few times yesterday.
It is so easy to find ourselves in a situation to judge, isn’t it? I was sitting in Starbucks the other day when this beautiful woman walked in. By her appearance, it looked like she had just come from the gym or a run… and she was still gorgeous.
Rather that focus on her, I instead looked at each woman in the coffee shop only to see them look her up and down… sizing her up. A few rolled their eyes and snickered something to their friend. One stopped her phone conversation for a few moments. All shot daggers at her with their eyes.
I hope this woman didn’t notice!! By just walking in to get a drink, she was judged harshly by every woman there. And she did nothing to deserve that treatment.
It created a few questions in my mind:
- Why do we do this to each other?
- Why do we look at other women like they are competition?
- Why do we secretly do the happy dance when another sister falls?
- Why do we tear down a sister rather than come along side her?
- Does it get better or worse with age?
I want to hear your thoughts on it. I’d like this to be a forum for discussion. Will you go out of your comfort zone and contribute to the conversation?
Yes? Good! Take a minute and comment on this post and share your opinions, experiences, suggestions, scriptures. Keep in mind that I have the option to “edit” your reply, so be respectful. 😉
Feeling too vulnerable to share? Good! (Wo)Man up! Step out! Look… we’re all experts in this area so don’t expect me to believe you have nothing to contribute.
We’ve all judged and felt judged many times is our lives… and I want to hear from your experiences!
