How to be less judgemental?
Are you the judge and the jury at the same time?
Are you the kind of person who judges others according to your perception of reality?
And most importantly, are you constantly judging yourself?
If the answer to these questions is yes, then this blog if for you.
First of all, let’s think about a concept that perhaps you already know.
The human brain is designed to adapt and learn.
However, we all do that in different ways and because of this we experience reality in different ways, we navigate reality in different ways, we see the world in different ways and we absorb and understand information in different ways.
When you judge the other you expect them to have the same standards that you do which goes against what the brain is designed to do.
You are unique in your own way and different does not mean wrong.
When you only accept the other according to your own standards, it limits your experience of reality, it jeopardises your relationships with the other both in the private and professional areas of your life and it makes you blind to opportunities.
However, this is not the worst-case scenario.
The worst-case scenario is when you judge yourself; when you set up standards for yourself that are so high that it is humanly impossible to achieve. Consequently, when you don’t get the results you expect you get frustrated and angry with yourself. You may also start thinking that you are not good enough.
What to do then, what’s the way out?
The solution is to choose to be flexible.
Choose to be aware that we are different by nature when you interact with others.
Let’s take action right now.
Bear in mind that your experience is different from the other, how you see reality is different from the other, how you absorb information is different from the other and be flexible.
Be flexible with yourself first and review your standards. Make them achievable, adaptable and flexible.
Always have in mind flexibility, understanding and kindness to yourself first and then to others.
