I know that I am hurting when I jugde others. It can be phyisical and or emotional pain I am feeling-so I project it on to others. I thank God, thanks God, for reminding me that it's about me, not anyone else. So when I judge, I stop & say "beautiful child of God."
I have to do this (catch myself judging & stop, be mindful) on purpose, regardless of how I think or feel. I am no better then anyone else, God loves us all equally.
I find it a lot harder, not to judge when I feel rejected, hurt, shamed, dismissed... However, I know hurting people, hurt people. And I make mistakes & need to be accountable (own it) & make ammends.
For, in truth, when I hurt someone, I am also hurting myself.
So many of us have neglected to be accountable for our words, actions, attitudes-one does not need to say anything to reject, dismiss or hurt someone, & this fact is sad. I have seen it & felt it in so many communities & by individuals.
There is always Hope! We can all start with ourselves by simply being pleasant & polite-saying, please & thank-you.
You Are Worth So Much!
God Bless You
