Should is uncomfortable for me too .. I don't normally look at people and think they "should" do this, or "shouldn't" do that - except when I see someone telling another person they "should" or "shouldn't" do something! Then I start thinking - "hey, you shouldn't be telling that person what they should be doing." Ironic.
I think it can mean different things to different people too:
"If you don't do it, you're a bad person" (very judgemental)
"Doing it would be useful to other people" (just an observation of fact)
"Doing it will help you to move towards that purpose" (guidance)
I don't think it's always a judgemental word. I don't know how the OP meant it in this thread, really.
