“Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.” Everyday we need to make judgments. We need to judge whether or not it is safe to pull out into the traffic or whether or not we should allow our children to go someplace or do something they have never done before. Those kind of judgments based on reasoning are intended to keep us safe and on the path we have chosen. It is when we judge others whom we are merely observing and have no direct impact on our own lives that we put ourselves at risk of hampering our own growth as a person because we are putting too much emphasis on what others appear to be rather than on areas where we need to change ourselves.

I believe that people shouldn’t assume how others are. Based on their appearance or looks that they make. As the old saying states- don’t judge a book by its cover. Everyday we see new people and automatically make assumptions of them. Which is very unnecessary. As I get older, I learned that everything is not what it seems. Therefore not everyone is what they look to be. For instants, we might see a white male dressed in all black with a bunch of tattoos/piercings and carrying around a music player obtained with loud rock music, automatically someone would make an assumption that he’s the rock star type that slacks, and just doesn’t care or shows emotion. or say that your riding through a low-income neighborhood and spots a black male standing on the corner, dressed in baggy clothing, while smoking an cigarette. Automatically people would assume that he’s a “thug” or low life.

Those two men may just look that way because that’s what must satisfies them, yet in reality their personality may be a totally different way from what it seems to be. In my opinion, when people make assumptions of others before getting to know them, it shows how very stereotypic they are. They need a break from TV. Not all the time the assumptions that people make are negative. Example, just because a female is very pretty, and dressed nicely, doesn’t mean she’s a very kind person. That’s what TV leads us to think sometimes.

When I was younger, I used to believe that when people put things in their socks, such as money, they were up to something not good. Reasoning, that’s what I seen on TV. But as I grow up, I realized that I believing that was very silly. Especially because I seen an old lady doing it before. Whoa.

To sum it all up, Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
