How To Be Non-Judgemental?

Updated: Sep 10

It is instinctive for every living being to be judgemental. It occurs through perception with the assistance of five sense organs. Being judgemental is often associated with someone who is excessively negative and forms opinions that are either critical or harsh and cruel about others. Such people make quick judgements about others for no apparent reason. For example, when the father visited a mall to make purchases along with his one-year-old infant found it difficult to manage as his son was uncontrollably sobbing. This caused irritation to another customer standing behind him at the billing counter. The customer asked the man to do something to console the child. To this the man replied that his wife had died unexpectedly the day before and that he was still struggling to come to terms with it. The infant was uncontrollable as he missed his mother. Only then did the consumer realize what was wrong and ceased to be irritated. This is being judgemental and critical.

It is now quite easy to relate to numerous occasions in which people have judged you negatively or vice versa. It usually hurts individuals who are misunderstood and wrongfully blamed. Then there are some who actively damage others merely because they despise them, whether due to their physical appearance, complexion, jealousy, gender prejudice, or other factors. There might be a zillion reasons why someone would be judgemental towards you and cause you harm.

Here are some practical suggestions to aid you towards becoming non-judgemental.

  1. When around a stranger, avoid forming any opinion about them. You still don’t know anything about them. So, refrain from forming critical opinions about them without reason.

  2. When meeting a person for the first time, keep a cheerful attitude, be positive and have an open mind to know more about them. Make no preconceptions about them before meeting them.

  3. When attending a social event, refrain from guessing why someone did not answer to you or started conversing with another suddenly without first excusing themselves, or someone made a casual comment about you that upset you, and so on.

  4. Be conscious of your thoughts at all times. This will help you the most in either ceasing to be judgmental or becoming the object of judgmental conduct from another.

  5. Stop overgeneralizing about people. Each person is unique and perfect in their own way. Alternatively, if you are among individuals who are overly judgemental of you, avoid them and keep a safe distance from them since they drain your energy. Ignore them if you want to remain peaceful and optimistic.

Following these simple suggestions could transform you completely. This would also help you to focus on more important events in your life while caring less about others.
