Thanks for the reminder, Rusty. I'm trying to be a kinder human being, but don't always succeed. I'll try to remember today's thought when I'm out and about and find myself going down that judgy path.

Thank you Rusty!

I try not to judge I really do! I try not to even judge the judgers. That's the tough one for me.

When successful at remembering, my mantra is that we are so much more than the small snippets of our lives in the stories we tell and are told.

I like to tell myself as few stories as possible about things so I don't get misled by them.

This is an interesting TED talk titled The Danger of a Single Story.

I wish everyone was less judgmental and instead was kinder and more considerate. We have an Autistic son and you would not believe the insensitive carp we have had to put up with for 34 years. It has changed me to be more thoughtful when viewing any situation.

For far too many people, others are just bit players in the drama of their lives.
