Do you judge people for coming down with illnesses like cancer or heart disease, or even the flu? You understand that these are things that no one wants, and avoids as much as they can, and so you offer sympathy rather than judgment. Are you willing to extend the same degree of grace to those with mental illness? This can make people socially awkward and do annoying things that drive people away, but is judgment justified if the condition is beyond the persons control, or even if it is within their control? Would people freely choose these conditions any more than they would physical illness?
