Most judgments begin as self-judgment. Either we wouldn’t accept ourselves if we behaved that way or we do¬†act that way and we’re in denial. Projection is pretty common way of coping with shame or unworthiness. When we notice ourselves judging others, it’s the perfect time to look within and ask how we too, may exhibit similar behavior. If we can muster up compassion for them, maybe we can do it for ourselves too. Using judgments this way turns negativity into a tool for greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-love and compassion for others and…

Ourselves.
