Judging is easy.

Truly understanding why someone did something (that you would never ever do) is way harder.

It took me a long time to get to the place where I finally understood that people aren’t deliberately dumb or stupid when they make a decision I deem to be dumb or stupid.

I had to acknowledge that my judgement was a personal opinion based on a personal perception of a situation for which I usually did not have all of the background details.

All of us are simply human, doing the best we can, as best we can.


👉🏽 Don’t judge people for the choices they made when you don’t know the options they had to choose from.

👉🏽 Ask questions.

👉🏽 Listen louder.

👉🏽 Show #empathy.

👉🏽 Communicate and respond genuinely.

👉🏽 Support your people and lead them like a rockstar.

👉🏽 Be a good human.
