Do you find yourself judging others based on your values?

I’m not talking about the heavy life-and-death stuff here, I’m talking about the everyday stuff…

“I don’t feel the need to (insert behavior here), but if so-and-so does….”

All the time. In fact, I often make a conscious effort to be less judgmental. It never works.

Yeah, that’s pretty much what lead up to this post.

Whew, I’m thinking that I’m this close to going Harie Karie on someone with an industrial stapler and packing tape.

Absolutely. Don’t see the point in judging people according to non-me values.

… And after you get medieval on their buttocks with the stapler, you can then remove the staples with your staple puller!

I’m thinking I’d rather see them, um, “back up”, so they won’t be here.

I do this (internally) EVERY minute of every day…it is a part of what burns a hole in my stomach.

it’s a sliding value scale… let’s try “impale kittens on pitchforks outside my door at halloween” vs “smoke”… somewhere in between there is where value judgment stops and ridiculous levels of tolerance begin.

whoa. that’s heavy. going back to my drink now….

Mom says, “Yes.”

It should be your values or at least values that you can live with. We all make compromises at times, yet will most likely come back to our core beliefs. It is who we are. We tend to surround ourselves with like spirts. As people change, our self included, we will change and except different beliefs. But our core will remain.

[@ Mr. Bill] Argh. Yeah, see, I blame this on your Military training; You are told things as you need to know them (i.e. “don’t ask what/why if it doesn’t involve you”) and if you don’t have anything to say, it’s okay not to talk. And that’s what bothers me with CC… he has to comment, in excess, about EVERYTHING.
