that causes our suffering.”
— The Buddha
I’m a recovering perfectionist.
I admit it.
What I’ve learned in my journey is to accept myself as I am right now.
As I accept myself it’s so much easier to accept others as they are, without judgement.
Do I still have judgements?
Yes, I do.
I’m aware of them as they pop up and I know that they are just judgements and not the truth.
Judgements are a trap for the person doing the judging.
They don’t hurt who or what’s being judged.
And they use up a lot of time and energy you could be using on something more useful, like achieving your goals.
I don’t judge much anymore.
I’ve noticed that I’m more free to just be and more fun to be with.
To begin to have more freedom do this Action Step today.
- Notice when you are judging someone or something.
- Own it. It’s your opinion and nothing more.
- Enjoy it.
- Let it go and vow to do better next time.
- What did you learn?
