We all don't want to be judged.

There are only 3 types of judges that I studied when I was in college. My Sociology professor had shared to us his theory. All of us don't want to be judged... or misjudged. Though nobody is ever rightful to judge another person, it always is important to keep ourselves knowledgeable of the rightful people whom should impose judgements on certain circumstances.


This includes people who own a position in the court, senate and executive office. All of them had taken an oath to keep, sustain and respect order in an office, municipality or country for that matter. It involves common good and to that, any laws studied, debated on, produced and approved are to be followed as imposed. Anybody who'd go ignorant and/or against it is punishable by law.

Ex. president, chief executives, senators, queen


These are people who had studied for years and years and have completed a curriculum to earn such position. They have certification, entitlement, medals, awards and anything alike that proves that they are worthy to judge you. Not personally but objectively. This is due to the reason that they'd judge you based on the need for you to be judged. Meaning, only in the field of expertise that they have.

Ex. doctors - They judge your diagnosis but the final decision is yours when it comes to medical treatment to be done; doctorate is the highest form of education
      lawyers - They will judge your case as something to fight for based on your civil and human rights
      teachers - They will grade you according to expected performance based on level of curriculum suited for your age.


Similar to the lawmaking bodies, the assigned leaders are put into position to maintain peace and order. Although, they can be seen and observed in minimal area of concern, they have the right to judge following a certain criteria, a specific set of rules and regulations and/or (but not limited to) an agreed percentage allotment. These leaders need more training, knowledge and further experience so they are likely to be judged as well based on facts like manual contents, rule books and/or videos of the exact circumstance. Usually, to amend and keep errors to a minimum, these assigned leaders often come in groups to seek better judgement.

Ex. pannel of judges in a beauty contest, line of officers in the classroom, 3 referees in a basketball game

Probably you're surprised that not even your own parents are on the list of people whom you should allow to judge you. This means that beyond these people, it's YOU who is the greatest judge of yourself. It comes from within you, your core values, the limitations of your understanding and your willingness to learn as to how you'd judge your own life. It's you who'd choose your person to look up to. If for some reason, you can't see a parent as your guide because of issues he/she has to work on, by all means, choose one that keeps you in the right path. Begin not judging by looking at your own self. Stop judging YOUR OWN SELF. Stop saying you're not worthy, stop saying you're not enough, and stop giving yourself labels. Liberate yourself from negative thinking to avoid channeling it out to others. Live free.

If you think there are more leaders that I should know of, feel free to share it by commenting below. I would love to hear about your opinion.
