I’d love to say we live in a world without judgement, but we don’t. Humans loooove to judge others but hate being judged ourselves. I suppose that’s just in our nature. We really have no room to pass judgement because everyone has their own lives and make their own choices, but we’re all guilty of it.
If there’s one person you should never judge, it’s your best friend. Your BFF is supposed to be the one person you can go to with anything and vice versa. What does your friendship even mean if you judge her when she shares things with you? You don’t want her judging you so why would you judge her? Here are 15 things you need to stop judging your best friend for, like, yesterday:
Her Sex Life
You shouldn't judge anyone for their sex lives, whether they're having ALL the sex or not. You especially shouldn't judge your best friend for her sex life. She should be able to talk to you about it without feeling judged.
How Often She Masturbates
Homegirl shouldn't feel badly for loving herself, no matter how often she does it!
Who She Dates
You might not like your BFF's new boo, but it doesn't mean you can judge her for dating them. You can't control who she dates. If they're actually bad for her, she'll realize it on her own terms.
Getting Back With Her Ex
I know it can be frustrating when a friend gets back with a crappy ex. But that's her decision, not yours. She has to make her own mistakes, and a lot of the time she'll only want to be with them more if you keep telling her what a bad idea it is.
How She Does Her Makeup
No, subtly suggesting a makeover is not a good move. Just because you think your BFF wears too much makeup doesn't mean she does. Whatever amount she's comfortable with is what's right. For her.
What She Wears
We don't want society judging us for what we wear by being told we're "asking for it" or are dressed "slutty." You have no room to judge your friend for a short dress or low-cut top or whatever she wants to wear.
Her Strange Beauty Habits
So your BFF shaves her legs once a week and also shaves her sideburn hairs that she doesn't like. So what? You have your own beauty habits too. No judging allowed here!
How Often She Washes Her Hair
I didn't wash my hair for five days, and it wasn't gross. If my hair isn't dirty, I'm not going to wash it! Your friend's hair is on her head so why do you care?
Her Interest In Books, TV, Movies, Etc.
Kaitlin from Teen and I share the same issue: our friends judge us for reading a lot of YA. Well, you know what? I love YA books. They make me happy so take that.
How Much Time She Spends On Netflix
You binge-watch TV shows just as much as she does, don't lie.
What She's Fighting With Her Parents About
I used to get so mad at my best friend for fighting with her mom because her mom was SO cool. But she wasn't my mom. Everyone has issues with their parents, your BFF included.
Having Other Friends
I know you want your best friend to be ONLY yours, but this isn't realistic at all. It's important to branch out and have friends outside each other. If she's really your BFF, she's not going to forget about you!
How Much She Spent On That Outfit
Nope. Not your money, not your problem.
So your BFF wants to take a gap year instead of going to college or wants to pursue acting? Be supportive instead of judgmental.
What Websites She Visits
We all look at weird stuff on the internet. Your BFF is the person who should clear your browser history without judgement if something happens.
