209- Animal Judgment

When’s the last time you felt judged or criticized by an animal?

Animals don’t care about how you look, dress, or sound. They care neither about your wealth, career ambitions, sexual orientation nor your politics, religion, or skin color.

Animals have no #judgment or ulterior motives. They only care about how you show up and the consistency with which you treat them.

Imagine how life would be if we could bring that same approach to our friendships and #relationships. Imagine how that would change the way we see ourselves.

132- Reserve Judgment

I have a terrible habit of instantly judging people.

It comes from having an unwavering moral opinion on situations and having the need to slot them into binary categories of right or wrong.

The problem is that my judgments are often incorrect – which should come as no surprise since they come from incomplete information clouded with emotional bias.

If we’re more interested in the truth than in being right, holding back #judgment for as long as we can is crucial. It allows us to be curious and explore the “why” behind an action. It also challenges us to look at the situation from different perspectives to understand it better.
