When you constantly judge others you probably judge yourself unfairly too. Practice compassion instead, and improve your relationships with yourself and others. We’ve all heard the expression in some form or another that the nature of your relationships are determined by the way you make people feel. In this video I talk about our own self-judgement which is reflected in the way that we treat others.
When we heal ourselves and relate to ourselves with love and compassion, you can turn that mirror out into the world. You can reflect onto the world and the nature of your interactions will change. You will come from a place of love. A place of non-judgment and compassion. But you can’t do that unless you have found the compassion for yourself.
2 minute tip: Compassion instead of Judgement
1. Think of something that you have done, or not done, which you are judging yourself for.
2. Now imagine that you are your friend (who you love very much), and you see this what you are thinking of, in your friend.
3. Instead of judging them for their behaviour, you look at them with understanding and compassion instead.
4. Turn this understanding and compassion to yourself now. Feel how your heart softens.
When this becomes your default behaviour – consciously practising understanding and compassion for yourself, you lead with love.
