Imagine going to a court trial where the judge, the jury, and the defendant are all the same person—You! What would you think of that scenario? You’d probably think you’re in some bizarre Twilight Zone episode. It wouldn’t make any sense. Yet, that’s basically what a lot of you are: judge, jury, and defendant; except you have no one to speak on your behalf; no representation to protect your rights. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But, oh so true!
So many of you are in constant judgment of yourselves. You judge continuously. Unfortunately, you tend to judge yourself negatively. Then you, the jury, agrees wholeheartedly, and comes up with a guilty verdict. You could be guilty of being: “ugly, fat, clumsy, wimpy, not good enough,” etc. The list could go on.
While in a court of law, you would have a lawyer protecting your interests, in the real world you have nothing but You—the very You who found you guilty to begin with.
The very first thing you need to do is to stop the Judgments. The next thing is, that if you do have a moment of weakness, and judge yourself poorly; don’t immediately agree (with the guilty verdict). Understand that the vision you have of yourself is somewhat skewed. Then please do get someone to speak on your behalf. This has to be a person who loves you, and can see you for who you really are.
If you do this enough times, you’ll understand that you’ve been judging yourself too harshly. Maybe you were given some false evidence growing up, who knows? But now it’s time to really examine the true evidence of who you are. And that’s Perfection.
If you need someone to represent you, I’ll be more than happy to do it pro-Bono. Anything for a good cause!
