Sebastiano Serafini – Don’t be so quick to point out the flaws in other people’s lives.

Don’t be so quick to point out the flaws in other people’s lives when you are not willing to look at the flaws in your own.


Never judge anyone. There was once an old man, that sat at the same park bench day after day. A younger gentleman that went running in this same park almost daily always saw this happy, smiling old man, and always wondered why he would just come to the park, sit and smile. Finally after about a year, his curiosity got the best of him, and he stopped to ask the older gentleman why exactly he sits in the same spot daily and just smiles at everyone who passes by.

The older gentleman replied “When my wife was alive, she used to walk laps around this park, while I used to sit here and read and watch her pass me. I can’t help but to wonder, if in some way, since she loved this place so much, that I can maybe get a glance of who she was somehow by just sitting here and doing the same thing I used to do when she was alive.”

You never know what someone is going through, and you never know how you can help someone if you just don’t judge them before knowing who they really are!

  1. Great message! And so true. We should be here to lift one another up, not drag each other down. One person’s success and happiness should be uplifting for all. There is no end of the amount of caring, love and appreciation inside each of us, so we should be generous with it. Whatever good we can do right now, let us do it, for this particular opportunity may not arise again. Love your words and am so happy for your current dreams coming true. ~☆~♡~☆~

  2. Ok… credo (temo), di aver “causato” questo post con quanto ho scritto ieri… vero?
    Beh, io normalmente non giudico le persone, ma ci sono questioni sulle quali non accetto compromessi: andare in giro scollate non ha nulla a che vedere con la bellezza, la femminilità o con l’essere donna: non ha importanza chi sia la persona o che cosa stia passando, si chiama DECENZA, punto.
    Una persona che considera il proprio corpo come il suo tempio non merita nessun complimento, perché non ha capito niente: tutti invecchiano, e puntare tutto su qualcosa di così transitorio come il corpo e la sua bellezza è qualcosa che porta solo alla rovina!
    La storia che hai raccontato è bellissima, e ancora più conferma quello che dico io: la moglie era una persona meravigliosa, ma era meraviglioso il suo cuore! Non c’è nessun riferimento al fisico, non sappiamo neanche come era fatta!
    In quanto al riconoscere i propri difetti, ok… riconosco di essermi espressa in maniera troppo diretta e poco diplomatica, ma non ritiro quello che ho detto!!!
    Ripeto: ci sono davvero poche cose che fanno pensar male di una persona: ma questa è una di quelle!!!
    Forse la mia risposta non ti piacerà, ma ho dei principi e non li cambio per nessuno…. nemmeno per te!
    Scusa, ma spero che apprezzerai la sincerità!
    Ciao, Seba!!!

    • Mara, when I read this post it also brought guilty feelings out in my heart. Maybe, it was not caused by any opinions you stated, but maybe the message was for you (just as it was for me) because it touched something in us that we already felt uncomfortable with. None of us are perfect. We are all a work in progress…striving to become our best selves. It is the mark of a conscientious person to look inward with an assessing eye and consider how to improve. From all I can see, you are a very kind and supportive person, and I can’t imagine you doing anything to hurt someone else. Hugs for you! ❤

      • Oh, Remi, thank you for your words, but believe me: I can be very cruel.
        I work a lot on improving my patience (not my virtue!) and although now some results I get, sometimes, but mostly about some things I can not count to ten, explode, and I end up saying something the wrong way.
        Especially if it is a principle or a person that I care, or both, as in this case.
        I am a very impulsive, but as you said to (thanks again!) we are all “working in progress”!!!
        Bye bye!!!^^
