Got a quest on AskFM: kenapa sih banyak orang yang suka nge-judge lewat media sosial? Padahalkan menebarkan kebaikan itu bisa lebih indah?

First of all, being judgmental in general terjadi karena manusia gagal mengenal dirinya sendiri–in deeper sense of recognizing ourselves. Kenal diri sendiri nggak cuma berarti tau bahwa kamu itu seorang yg introvert, koleris, ambivert, pemalu, pendiam, or whatsoever. Mengenal diri sendiri lebih dari itu. Bahkan sampai kepada, “untuk apa/siapa kamu hidup?”, “kenapa kamu (masih) hidup?”, “apa potensimu?”, “why you do certain things?”, “apa yg nge-drive kamu melakukan ini dan itu?” dan banyak pertanyaan mendalam lain.

 And it requires a lifetime journey.

Kenapa orang jadi judgmental karena alasan itu? Yes of course, karena kalau kamu kenal banget sama diri kamu, kamu nggak akan berani menghakimi orang lain–kebanyakan kita pasti melakukan hal yg sama–atau punya potensi melakukan hal yang sama. This behaviour kemudian mendapat ruang yang lebih besar dalam penggunaan sosial media.

What can you interprete from a filtery kind of picture on Instagram? It will never fully describe anything about that person. I mean, ketika kamu yang tidak mengenal dirimu sendiri dengan baik mulai menilai seseorang di sosmed yang tidak kamu kenal dengan baik (people tend to judge someone they barely know, right?) maka jadilah ini double-trouble. What measure will you use to do so?

The good news, the more you understand yourself, the less you judge. The more you understand others, the less you judge. Imagine if these two things combined together. The world will be less judgmental.

The next question is, how could we understand ourselves more each day? 🙂
