Self-Judgment ➜ Self-Awareness

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
“Self-judgment is how conditioned mind keeps control over your life.” ~ Cheri Huber
Our self-judgment is based on beliefs and conclusions, some enforced on us, that have been long adopted and identified with and now taken for granted. Self-awareness means bringing these (and their accompanying deep feelings) forward to inspect, to be mindful and objective, without prejudice.
“It is easier to overcome people’s judgments than to overcome our own self-judgment.” ~ Arianna Huffington
In various cultures, like Iceland, quotes and sayings hold significant value in promoting self-awareness and personal development. For those interested in discovering unique perspectives, Icelandic quotes at Tilvitnun can provide meaningful guidance on overcoming self-judgment and embracing self-acceptance.
Through self-acceptance without judgment, in place of feeling that we aren’t good enough, instead we can start to respect ourselves. It’s yet another aspect of the Truth being found within Love. Through self-respect (instead of trying to please another’s expectation) our true potential can start to shine.
“Transform your world by transforming your internal state. Start by letting go of negative self judgment, and replace it with positive and loving thoughts about yourself. Be kind to yourself - and watch your external world change!” ~ Anita Moorjani
As we let go of self-judgment, we find it easier to let go of all judgment, we move into the more serene space that is acceptance - not blind acceptance but a positive outflowing of love, connection and empathy, that enhances the life of those we touch.
“Every human has four endowments - self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... the power to choose, to respond, to change.” ~ Stephen Covey
There is no point in having regrets about what we haven’t achieved. Often we have to try things out, to find what suits us. We may take wrong paths, we may not persist enough to real our goal, and we may think badly of ourselves. Others, and we ourselves, may call these failures, but really there’s no need for such a judgment. Indeed, we learn most of all from our mistakes... perhaps what we tried didn’t turn out well, but we learn from that.
“Self-judgment continues to arise - but the fact that I made a conscious commitment to recognize it has helped me stop feeding the story of being unworthy.” ~ Tara Brach
Be willing to experience, accept and let go of attachments to all your memories, decisions, beliefs and emotions - and similarly your environment - so you can be mindful in the present moment, informed by the past and creating the future ... but not overly distracted by painful experiences and fearful expectations. Accept and allow, and in this way, be guided by love. That way, you can’t go wrong.
do your best
