Being judgemental is neither good nor correct. When we judge others only from our frame of reference, we invariably fail to understand all other frames of reference that may lead to totally different perspectives. Being judgemental is a sign of arrogance, disrespect and ignorance IMHO. History shows us that those who judge others also get judged by others, in exactly the same manner and with the identical yardstick of measure. Don't be judgemental, and accept the world as is. Always live, and let live all others around you. Cheers!
