Why is it that we often feel the need to judge others? I often catch myself passing judgement. Is it a necessary condition of being a human? There are very few things in life that are black and white, perhaps it's our attempt to create absolutes in a world often filled with grey. There are absolutes that we live by however what do we gain by judging others? When I judge someone am I not being selfish and discounting the person I've judged?
