We make judgments everyday. Furthermore it's not even possible to view the world without judgments. It's human nature to protect yourself and by remembering judgments you know what to stay way from. A while ago I had a conversation with someone about the negativity of judgments. It is true that negative judgments (things that are dangerous) are hard to get rid of. But judgment aren't necessarily bad. It depends from which basic emotion they are coming from. There are positive and negative judgments.
Anger of hate is the basic emotion behind negative judgments. Anger has many forms, from being upset or mad to rage of wrath. Judgments coming from anger want revenge. They want to set the record straight of even make a perpetrator suffer more than you did. It's focus is on yourself.
On the other hand positive judgments find their ground in love. Love also has many forms. Judgment and love seem to contradict each other, but they really don't. A judgment from love has always it's focus on the other. On the positive side of things.
On one hand judgments protect you from bad things. You know to keep away. On the other hand judgments also help you find things that are good for you. But to experience and learn new things we must be able to put all our judgments aside, or at least evaluate them. Know yourself, know your judgments and evaluate them. Sometimes you'll find that they are really helpful and other times you'll find that they will keep you away from beautiful new experiences that can enrich your life.
