Are your judgements blocking your happiness?

Image 48243874 - sunrise jetty Every day we’re judging each other for a hundred different things – hair, dress, race, manner of speaking, expressed emotions, behaviour, the list goes on and on. But what if we forgot to judge? Yesterday, I had an indepth conversation with a colleague where she opened up to me about a highly personal experience she had been through. This lady has been to hell and back but no-one at work knows. If they did know, it would explain a great deal such as why she sometimes gets upset over small things, why she is more susceptible to stress than others and why she may occasionally react with anger.

A Course in Miracles says that if everything were known it would be impossible not to forgive. We would completely understand where others are coming from so would have no need to judge and condemn. So when you find yourself judging someone, remember that they have a back-story that you know little or nothing about, even if you think you know them well. Withhold your judgement and extend love instead – this is the essence of compassion and forgiveness. I guarantee it will be the beginning of more positive interactions  and they’re the moments happiness is made of. Oh, and remember to apply this to yourself too!
