But there is NO judgement. Not from me at least.
It is ALL judgment from your perception. If I am truly honest in giving my opinion of others (as you are) then I would say that you have limited understanding of them. Unless you can walk in their shoes (which you clearly haven't) understanding and empathy is impossible.
You see, my preferred approach is to speak with authority. As if I really know what I'm talking about. Weather I really do or not is up to you to decide.
I don't wish to hurt your feelings but again I will be honest. I think you don't know what you are talking about. However, I do understand where you are because I have been there too. Perhaps not with quite so many adjectives but still, I saw others in a bad light and I was WRONG!
I was wrong because I did not understand others behaviour. I had to understand my own first and this is what I am endevouring to show you. Your behaviour is the only one that counts and the only one you have total control of.
If you are not aware of the effect of your behaviour or the consequences of your judgment then yes, they might even kill you, just look at Jesus.
