I am taking this week to be aware of judging and being judged. I need to step back and look objectively at why people, myself included, feel the need to judge each other. I am fairly sure it has a lot to do with seeing in others what we don't like about ourselves. Why else would we feel so personally offended by the life choices of people we often don't even know. I never thought of myself as a judgmental person until I took the time to step back and really look at how I interacted with others. When I moved to San Francisco right out of college I was first and foremost in love with that town and always will be. However, the downtown was full of homeless. At first, I was pretty generous considering I was completely broke. If I had change in my pocket it was there for the asking. Somewhere along the way I began to decide who was worthy of my money 50 cents or $1. I started to harden my heart. I started to look right through them. Now I know you can't just give your money away all the time and it is good to use some discretion but really who am I to judge whether a person is worthy of my help or at least a look in the eye. I have always loved this song. If you have time, really give the lyrics a listen. HOLE IN THE BUCKET-SPEARHEAD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CszG_bR35Mw
