2. Freedom to think and act - Give them the freedom to think and take decissions.

3. Gratitude & love for all - Gratitude sure makes the world a better place

Connection between happiness and judgemental

Read an article on Happiness and these are some thoughts arising of it.

It is a common mistake done by us in dealing with others, we assume that they share the same view of reality as we do.We usually ignore each one is from a different background, have different opinions, have different preferences. We expect them to behave as we wish and when when it doesn't happens we are unhappy.

Our mind is programmed to be judgmental.A pretty lot of negative energy is being wasted when we are judgmental.  Since judgment comes so naturally and easily to us, breaking the habit is difficult.

1. Just focus on only the positive side of people.

2. Always have some empathy for others. This will surely reduce the urge to judge others.

3. Don't assume you and your thoughts are always right.

4. Do we actually have the right to ask "Why they are not behaving like what I expect?". I think this is the most foolish question we ask.

From my own life experiences I have felt I was always in trouble whenever I was judgmental.

Some quotes on this

Judge nothing, you will be happy.
Forgive everything, you will be happier.
Love everything, you will be happiest.
