Are Fear of Judgements Holding You Back? by Shefali Burns

Are Fear of Judgements Holding You Back?

 

Are you now questioning the above question? Are you asking yourself if this is true? Is that one reason that you are not living the life that you desire? So many of us, me included, let judgements from others and ourselves limit us. Sometimes, they are perceived judgements or even anticipated judgements that stop us in our tracks.

 

This is a huge topic, and I know that there have been many books written about this subject, to be honest, this still affects me on a regular basis. The actual judgements from others, the anticipated judgements when I think too much about something, and the perceived judgements, that may or may not even be true.

 

So what is judgement? This is something that we do all of the time, many times a day. We make something good or bad, negative or positive, right or wrong. We are adding a quality to something that just is. When we do this, we form a barrier or wall, a form of resistance, we are saying no to some sort of energy or better still we are creating a separation, a distinction between us and them.

 

When someone is judging us in a negative way, we take it personally, as if it is an attack on us personally, on our character, our value. Instead of just observing a situation or person objectively, we are sometimes putting a negative spin on it or them, that they did something wrong. So when you judge you are saying that you are dissatisfied with them, you are not accepting them as they are. This is the same as when we judge ourselves. We are not accepting us as we are, we are not allowing us to be as we are, we want to change ourselves, which is okay, but not when it is coming from a place of judgement. You actually will not be able to change anything or anyone including yourself if you are coming from a place of judgement, you can only change yourself or your situation when you begin to accept and allow the change to occur from an empowered place.

 

Other people will always judge us, we cannot control what other people think or do. But, what can we do with the judgement that are coming at us? This actually took me a long time to figure out and then implement. Just accept the judgement, let it go through you, look at the lesson it is showing you, and bless the person for the lesson received, for the awareness received, and move forward.

 

You are more powerful and more magnificent than any judgement. Do not let it hold you back any more! The world requires your special, unique energy. Whatever passion, goal, and dream you have, just go for it. People are going to judge you anyway, just go for it. Why not let them judge you for the awesomeness that you are? Why not let them judge you for the successful inspiration that you are?

 

I invite you to accept and love yourself as you are while you pursue your dreams, accomplish your goals, and reach the pinnacle of your success. Live a life free of judgement, live a life of moxie!
