Lens of judgement

When we choose judgement over empathy, we are not allowing ourselves to appreciate the other person’s circumstances. We do not know what is happening, or has happened, in another person’s life that may have conditioned them or caused them to react in a way that we may judge as incorrect.

If we choose to observe without evaluation and respond from a position of empathy and peace within us, then we may find that we are viewing others as the beautiful human soul that we all are and that we so often miss through our lens of judgement.

Yeah…you should do that

It’s easy to give advice, also known as telling others, we can all seem to know the answer for someone else or how they should do something.

Yet, interestingly, we struggle to apply that wisdom to ourselves or we choose to tell another one thing and not apply that to our own behaviour.

We need to take our ‘own medicine’ and not be so eager to be judging and advising others or telling them.

We need to steer our own ship not someone else’s.
