Be curious, not judgmental.




Oh wow, I don't know about you, but I grapple with being judgmental. I quickly categorize, separate, and compare—actions that often stem from my pride and a need to feel superior. [Big Bad Blind Spot]

 

I am bombarded with diverse perspectives and unique experiences. I see and witness many things I would never think or say. Adopting the mantra "Be curious, not judgmental" can significantly alter how I interact with my surroundings and the people within them. This simple yet profound approach encourages me to embrace openness and curiosity, leading to more prosperous and empathetic relationships and a greater understanding of this complex world.

 

My judgment often shuts down conversation and exploration. It puts a full stop where there might have been an opportunity. On the other hand, curiosity opens up a dialogue. It invites a story that is rich with different shades and colors. How can I judge another without walking in their sandals?

 

Curiosity drives me to ask questions, seek understanding, and explore the reasons behind people's actions and beliefs. This demystifies misconceptions and reveals the richness of human experience. Replacing judgment with curiosity teaches me about others, the world, and myself, fostering empathy and personal growth. It also paves the way for genuine, meaningful conversations, which are the foundation of solid and healthy relationships.

 

Choosing to be curious is a conscious decision to challenge my beliefs and biases and open myself to new ideas and experiences. It is a commitment to personal growth and a pledge to contribute to a more understanding and less judgmental world.

 

I must continue to remind myself to be curious, not judgmental. It's about making the world a little less harsh and a little more forgiving, one question at a time.

 

How about you? Can you "be curious, not judgmental?"

 

Watch for the blind spots.

Ongoing grapple for me too. Your approach is sound, just have to have that internal voice kick in that drags me back from that inevitable turn toward judgement. Thanks for the reminder.
