Who Are We Really Judging?

So, I want to stay focused this week on how illusory "image" is (last week's blog) and how easy it is to fool ourselves about who we are judging when we judge other people's behavior.

I ran across a related Medium article by Alex Mathers. Several lines spoke directly to me: "We live in a 'swipe left, discard it if it doesn't work' culture. One bad word uttered by another, and they are cast out without a moment's reflection."

Recently, Kevin Hart declined his dream job of hosting the 2019 Academy Awards. Suddenly his 2011 homophobic tweets were retweeted. Admittedly, I'm a fan of Hart's movies and stand up I've seen. Admittedly, I don't know him beyond his comedic persona.

I think there's something really important to reflect on - whether it's Hart or any other human.

How do we hold ourselves and others accountable while allowing for change and forgiveness?
