We came across this quote on Pinterest recently:
“You can’t judge others by their actions and judge yourself by your intentions.” — Unknown
But it’s so easy to do! When we judge ourselves, it’s pretty easy to give ourselves a break:
- “I was rude to that cashier, but it was only because I had a terrible day at work.”
- “I lied to my friend, but I don’t do it very often.”
Since we rarely know other people’s intentions, it can become easy to judge their actions. Does this change how you think about your reputation? More on that next time.
