How many times have I been offended or hurt because someone else has judged me? How often have I said that it is wrong to judge others?
And then I spend an extended period of time doing just that.
I owe an apology to the one I was judging, and to the Universe, as a whole.
Who am I to think I know better than the person themselves what is right or best for them? (And how many times has it infuriated me when someone did the same to me?!) None of us can ever know what decisions or choices are best for another person. (Hell, I haven't even gotten right for myself many of the times!) Each of us must do the best we can with what we have at any given moment in time, and trust that everything will work its way out. And, if we truly care about those people in the way we claim to, then our job is to be there to celebrate their accomplishments, provide support when it's needed, and be around to help pick up the pieces if it ever falls apart. We must do this with our whole and open hearts, and with the mindset of knowing that whatever decisions or choices were made were theirs to make in the first place. No judgement, no second guessing, no thinking we know better.
Because the absolute truth is, we don't.
