The Eighth Sin

Judgement is the eighth sin . The moment we see something we can't understand ,we jump to a conclusion and make a moral or character judgment. It's probably not easy to understand how much the world can benefit were there more restraint and thought before jumping to a conclusion. And I don't mean first impression when I say jumping to a conclusion. As a psychiatrist I also feel that not judging people before hearing their side of the story can make us better persons. I have heard many an unbelievable stories in my interactions with my patients as well as their so called normal relatives and the more I listen the more I see how their feelings or actions can be understood if we pause for a second and try to empathize. From childhood trauma to unbearable living conditions, the cause of strange and weird behavior can be as varied as our nature itself.
