“Be curious, not judgemental.” - Walt Whitman

You Are What You Judge

Do you know that your judgment of others is a reflection of you? And how you feel about yourself? It rarely has anything to do with the people you’re judging.

See, judgment is a defense mechanism that helps us justify our lives and maintain a sense of control. But control is something we seek when we feel afraid or insecure. And fear and insecurity is rooted in “not-love.”

The next time you judge someone – no matter what the judgment is – take a few moments to dig deep and understand why you made the judgment and what that might say about your inner thoughts and feelings.

The more we assess ourselves independently, the less we scrutinize each other. And the more peaceful and compassionate we become.
