Holding grudges, judging others, hating, wanting to cause harm, withholding forgiveness, gossiping, ridiculing, ignoring others, withholding mercy, throwing stones, 
STOP IT.

This hasn't even scratched the surface of the behaviours that we need to seriously rethink. All of us... think about it.

We all have been guilty of judgement, gossiping and throwing stones at some time in our lives. It appears to be human nature, a little chest pounding. It is not necessary to put someone down in order to build yourself up, but it happens nonetheless. Some of these behaviours smack of bullying, others are abusive. They are all unacceptable.

These are all negative behaviours, therefore, fear based. This is in no way an excuse, no one wants to put up with bad behaviour. A person that is not fear-based is less likely to act this way or have any need for the ego boost. 

"Love is the absence of judgement." Dali Lama 

Anyhow, despite all that may be said, these types of behaviours really do need to stop. It is a decision that everyone must make for themselves. It serves NO ONE to engage in this conduct, it only serves to appease the ego.

"Just because your pain is understandable doesn't mean your behaviour is acceptable." Dr. Steve Maraboli
