It is so easy for people to pass judgment on others.
Sometimes, regardless of having been out of high school for what seems a lifetime, we find people picking us apart.
It could be about our hair, our body, our choices, our significant others—you name it, someone somewhere will be judging you. Reasons for judgment are endless and ultimately selfish.
It’s often because someone is not comfortable enough in their own self and beliefs that they judge another for theirs. Let’s help change that.
We are going to meet people in our lives that have an abundance of knowledge in things that we have never had the opportunity of learning, doing things that we never had the opportunity of experiencing.
When we come across this, it is our job as a mindful individual to accept that it may not be for us, who we are, or who we want to be. Still, we should have respect for the other and their knowledge, beliefs and choices.
We don’t have to understand it all, nor experience it, but we can be respectful. Respectful of their choices and actions that make them who they are; yours make you who you are.
This mutual understanding helps make the world rEVOLVE.
I wish for you an abundance of wisdom
I wish for you the ability to put yourself into my path
Walk two moons in my moccasins before you pass judgment
Walk the hills and spaces that my body has covered
Feel the same ground that my feet have felt
I do not wish for you to understand who I am or why I do what I do
I wish for you the ability to respect me as an individual
As I have respect for you
Let me be free
Unbound by the chains of negativity, conformity, and guidelines
Alis volat propriis
Let me fly with my own wings
As you are free to fly with yours
Love me when I need it most
Love me when I need it least
Love me for me
Not for who you expect me to be
I love you for all that you are
All that you want to be
Let’s create a world where instead of picking apart each other
We encourage and lift each other up
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” ~ Rumi
We can be whole, at peace, at one with who we truly are
Love elephant and want to go steady?
