Try Judging Less, Understanding More

Dr. Hallowell shares some thoughts on reserving judgment in our “Gotcha!” world in this week’s Distraction mini episode. It’s time to cut each other some slack, says Ned, as he likens our current social climate to a meat tenderizer. We are all flawed and we need each other’s understanding, not judgment!

There’s an old French proverb he loves that goes, “Tout comprendre c’est tout pardonner,” which Evelyn Waugh translated and quoted in Brideshead Revisited, “To understand all is to forgive all.”

LISTEN NOW and learn Dr. Hallowell’s thoughts on why we should try and understand before we judge.
