How to Easily Stop Criticizing and Judging

Nov 22, 2022

This past week, I went to a personal growth retreat where one of the participants realized that she’s really, really judgmental.

She judged everything… from what people are wearing to where the plants are in somebody’s house to the color of the cupboards in their kitchen.

“Well, at least I’m not judgmental”, I thought to myself. “I’m a pretty open-minded person.”

Hah! I caught myself. I know that whenever I find myself denying having a characteristic I see in others, but don’t particularly like… well, chances are I have it too.

It’s an invitation for me to look a little deeper within.

Of course, I’m judgmental.

We’re all judgmental.

It’s on a scale, of course, some of us are more judgmental than others, but most of us tend to judge.
And then what we tend to do with that judgment is we usually tend to criticize and blame… which NEVER improves a relationship.
Nor does it leave us feeling particularly good about ourselves.

Can you relate?

But here’s the good news – noticing that you judge (and then probably criticize and blame) is a portal to personal transformation.

You can quickly help you identify what’s REALLY going on with you and transform the judgement into compassion and love, so that you honor and take care of yourself, while treating others with kindness and love.

Once I realized this and started applying a simple technique I learned to my life, everything changed for the better. I feel better about myself – kinder and more compassionate – and I find my relationships are much more harmonious too.

I made this video for you to share with you how you too can transform your judgement into compassion and love and have more harmonious relationships with yourself and others. I hope it helps you as much as these realizations helped me!

I love connecting with you! Leave a comment below or send me an email at natalie@nataliematushenko.com.

Happy Tuesday!
