Ever get that tiny little voice rising up in the back  

of your mind when someone says something or does something

that you just can’t believe or accept?

Your immediate thought is “Who do they think they are!”

There are times in our lives that we take on the attitude

of the judge, prosecutor and prison warden.

We get an attitude in us that rises up when we feel

tempted to become the judge of another’s wprds

or actions or life.

Why we feel this need to pronounce sentence is something

for the psychologists and therapists; but, all of us

have at some time .. took the seat that Judge Judy  

occupies..

Only thing is; She has the degree and we are merely

pushing around our opinions..Everyone has one.

Opinions become dangerous, however, when we begin  

to push them around as fact and as a standard of  

measurement..  

It’s ok to have an opinion.. but not at the expense of

another’s right to be themselves or at their right  

to coexist where you do..

It’s important to take that extra second to let

others know when things are just our humble opinion

and not something that is dogma..

When the “who do they think they are” attitude

evolves from a personal thought to a communal

nit picking . .things happen and  people are hurt.

I have to constantly remind myself that i dont

know whats going on inside the other person.. but

what’s going on outside that person I sometimes can

have an influence..  

May it always be for the good and not for the bad.

Joy
