Judging others is a sign of something you’re struggling with or haven’t healed from internally. It is anger, sadness, or some other bad feeling that you haven’t yet processed that is coming out and being directed at other people.
You can say, “What they’re doing is wrong!” but how is it wrong to you? Is it a belief or value you hold to be true, or is it something deeper like some other emotional wound that you haven’t yet released?
Also, how do you deal with judgmental people? If your significant other or a friend or family member is putting someone else down, what do you say or do? It’s a great topic to talk about and I share a way you can work with it and maybe even reach a more peaceful place inside yourself.
In segment 2, I talk about how to release your hold on guilt. I read a letter from a woman who feels terrible about how she treated her ex-husband. In fact, she feels so bad that her current marriage is suffering. I offer a perspective and a way out of guilt that may just allow you to let go of what you’ve been regretting for far too long now.
Guilt can lead to a place of compassion and it’s this one possibility that can lead you out of a dark place and into the light. It’s time to release the guilt. It doesn’t mean you suddenly feel good, but it’s a great start.
