“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same”~Nelson Mandela
How many of you hold back from being your true self because you fear judgment? I also pass by that bridge once in a while. It’s not a fun place to be. People can be cruel, bitter, and down right nasty. Which makes it very difficult to want to come out of your shell
“Our deepest fear is not that we’re inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?! You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.”
YOU are an amazing and beautiful human. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Don’t let social media, opinions of family, friends, ANYONE, hold you back from letting your light shine. They are not you so they can not understand your outlook of life.
Well me and my comrade Anshika occasionally feel isolated because of the fear of judgement from our parents. So I want to mention that, we might not be able to change them now, we can always keep trying but just don’t get anxious if you can’t. We can change the mind of a person who has not seen much in life ,like a child, who has yet to learn so much … that’s easy but a grown up has had their life experiences and they have a different perspective to life which we can not understand because we are not at the stage they are at. Also our and our parents’s minds only match upto about 50% according to psychology. And the rest 50 is what we learn from our surroundings, trust me 50 is not such small a value. Don’t feel isolated if you think they can not understand you or you can not understand them. It’s fine.
People showcase their own insecurities and inferiority complex by poking a finger out at someone and they don’t realise that three are pointing back at them. It’s just wrong to judge people. Everyone has their own story. What you see is incomplete reality. Instead of dooming faults in others, make time to correct your own.
Your value does not decrease based in someone’s inability to see your worth. It’s easy to judge. More difficult to understand. Understanding requires compassion, patience and willingness to believe that good hearts sometimes choose poor methods. Through judging we seperate, through understanding we grow.Be proud of who you are and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.
One thought on “Judge Me Not ….”
There is so much beauty in this post! What really stays with me, though, it that line on the last graphic, moving from “I’m a failure” to “I’m learning.” If we can strive to see both ourselves and others through the lens of learning rather than right or wrong, so much of our judgement would ease.
