Life is so interesting and amazing! When I was struggling and was really judgmental, I had a lot of Self-Love issues, a lot of self-judgments and I mostly felt that I wasn’t good enough. I truly believed there was something wrong with me. I felt that I was too much, too opinionated and outspoken and not outspoken enough, too mean and too nice, too angry and too passive, too giving and too generous. It was a crazy thinking overload.
I often felt that my personality, my being, my body, my everything was not lovable.
Therefore, being authentic was terrifying. I was working really hard to keep my “true” self hidden, because I judged my true self as being ugly, bad and wrong.
At the same time, I thought I was better than everyone else. Insanity!!!!
Now, that I’ve been actively, intently practicing non-judgment every day for more than a decade, I have to laugh! There’s hardly a day that goes by that someone doesn’t tell me how much they appreciate my authenticity. Literally, almost every day people tell me they love my authentic sharing – that I don’t pretend to be different than I am, I just put it out there.
So, I’ve learned the power of both non-judgment and authenticity.
I LOVE people who are transparent and authentic.
It’s important to understand that being authentic and transparent does not mean sharing all your opinions and judgments directed at others. Attacking others is not authentic at all – it’s pure ego which isn’t authentic, it’s completely false.
What IS authentic is humility, compassion, kindness, and humor.
I’m grateful I didn’t give up before, but instead made my commitment to non-judgment and true humility. I’m still becoming more my true Self every day and it’s an amazing, miraculous journey of LOVE. I’m so glad we’re taking the journey together! Thank you!
