Judgment: The ability to make sensible decisions after carefully considering the best thing to do.
Judgment: The process of forming an opinion or evaluation by discerning and comparing.
More commonly, Judgment includes negative feelings and actions toward others who are different than us. Unnecessary judgment can have a significant impact on our psychological well-being. In fact, studies have shown that this type of judgment increases levels of stress, anxiety, and feelings of depression for the person judging.
And I’ve found that it’s those judgments that can lead to disconnection and bias. Especially generational bias that is passed down and accepted without conscious thought or awareness. I go into more detail and a model about this in my most recent TEDx:
Those of you who have seen me speak or experienced my coaching know that I am passionate about helping people release the beliefs, judgments, fears, and assumptions that keep us from achieving our goals or being who we were meant to be. They are blocks that keep us from our potential and harm others at the same time.
Have you made an assumption or judgment about a person or situation that may not be fair?
Have you made a judgment about yourself that is contributing to self-doubt or shame?
It may be time to look at and let go of the judgments that are no longer serving you. Let me know if you need any help with this. [email protected].
Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
