Give 'em the Benefit of the Doubt

2/11/2009   Comment on This

Judging people is the one thing we all do and it's probably one of the worse things we do. When something happens, it is so easy not to examine everything and jump to conclusions. Society today wants a quick answer. If something happens in the workplace, right away the mentality is "If there is smoke, there must be fire."

We are in a rapid society, but you need to give people the benefit of the doubt and think about their reputation, which is good for most people. We do that with kids as well. If a kid has an earring or he is a bit edgy, we jump to conclusions that he is a gang member or does drugs in many cases. That might be a stupid idea, but people still think it.

We are judged by our cover, not what is inside. Loyalty is gone today. We jump and judge and decide that if things aren't pointing in the right direction, someone must be guilty.

Calm down, be more positive, and think good of people. Give them the benefit of the doubt and check out the facts before you light the torch on their character. You must peel it like an onion and then decide. I know I am guilty of this in many cases, but I am working on it.

I invite all of my blogging buddies to think about being a little less judgmental and slow down and give the person the benefit of the doubt before jumping to conclusions. If you get the facts and realize you were wrong, you'll feel better about yourself as opposed to feeling like a fool.

Have you been judged unfairly? Tell me your story.
