What About Judgement?

The truth about Judgement is it’s not pretty or productive. Who does it help? If you answered – no one — then that begs the question – Why? Why do we judge? Especially important, why do we judge ourselves so severely?

I’d love to hear your suggestions on how we can stop judging ourselves.

  1. Super great video Mariah!
    I totally agree with Paula right here: : “Judgement… I got rid of that…it does creep back, but I reject that… it’s a tennis match”
    When any judgement on my part appears, I remind myself “I am not here to judge – only observe”. #nojudgementzone

  2. My dear Mariah I love traveling with you😀. 🙏

    “What ever follows ‘I am’ follows you back”. I like that!

    Judgement… I got rid of that…it does creep back, but I reject that… it’s a tennis match

    Value is in the inside. Once we realize that…we get it 😀👏🏻 Travel well😀🙏

    Thank you for tour powerful and compassionate message my dear!

  3. I am in two minds on this post, Mariah, because form and content are two different parts of a message, and first impressions matter.
    But they sort of matter “in reverse” because they can trigger our own insecurities about whether we, the viewer, are enough. Your message about being enough may not be heard by the very people who need it the most, if they, because of their own issues surfacing, feel disrespected by a wrinkled and disheveled appearance in the video.

    It is amazing and sad how widespread “not being respected” is a default assumption held about how other people may feel about us.

  4. I love that you and your inner voice are friends now Mac. I read Ben Zander”s “The Art of Possibility” many years ago, his teachings are inspirational. I downloaded Sarah’s link. Thank you

  5. Thanks, Mariah.
    Ben Zander has some good stuff about “the voice in the head.” Our ego just buzzes away up there, minding everyone else’s business (including our own). He suggests when that happens, we just turn to look over our shoulder and say, gently and with love, “Not now, please, I’m busy.”
    My voice and I are friends, so I can not take it too seriously. My trick is to always react with humor to the message. I was raised to be driven by discomfort, to embrace being dissatisfied and unable to comprehend ‘enough.” It’s better now. More on that topic with my friend Sarah Ratekin:
