Years ago, I read a book by Gabrielle Bernstein called Judgment Detox, which I highly recommend.
I had picked up the book because the title of the book resonated with me since self-judgment was a topic I was starting to tackle personally.
However, at first, when I found who the author of the book was, I hesitated to read it. Friends of mine had told me about this author and the other books that she'd written, but I often dismissed her other books because I honestly had a negative judgment about her.
Which was ironic that when I started to address my self-judgment and how it had started to impact my life negatively, the universe said, hey, here's someone you're judging who has a book on this subject.
Taking this as a sign, I bought the book and learned so much from it. It changed my impressions about not only the Gabby but myself.
Being an ambitious Girl Boss, I've found that judgment can work in your favor or not.
In my younger years, some of my self-judgment worked for me to motivate me to do more. A number of my experiences honestly wouldn't have ever happened if that voice inside hadn't pushed me to strive for higher levels of achievement.
However, what I've also found is that judgmental voice, if left unchecked, can make your life a living hell.
I've found that if I only listen to this judgmental voice, I will ignore my intuition and my heart's guidance, which had often resulted in me becoming so crippled by fear that it would end up having full-blown anxiety attacks.
Lately, with so much fear in the world over the uncertainly of how this coronavirus pandemic will affect our lives in the future, I've noticed my judgment has been more critical than ever.
To help me detach from having self-judgment run the show, so I don't make any negative decisions based on fear. I've been doing the following exercise I would like to share with you today.
I've found when I do the above steps. It helps me have more control over my thoughts and actions, so I can make decisions that empower my life.
Give this exercise a try today if you're finding yourself overrun with self-judgment and would like support in removing the fear to empower a bright Girl Boss Life future for you.
