No, this isn’t a religious story. And, I promise this will be the shortest blog you’ll ever read by me…
I’ve been a victim of judgement over the years. What has always made it different for me however is my general “don’t give a fuck what you think” attitude which — has been both a good and bad thing.
You see, the general attitude of a “don’t give a fuck” personality is that while we have our insecurities, we rarely let them hold us back from doing or saying what we want.
So, if I can impart some wisdom in my 51 years of living on this planet:
- People that are judging you are looking for a temporary reprieve from their own insecurities.
- Judgement isn’t like a punch to the face and I promise you’ll never need medical attention from an errant judgement in your direction.
- Life is finitely short and if you let your fear of being judged hold you back, you will be standing at the short end of your existence wondering why you didn’t take more chances.
- Everyone judges — EVERYONE! Just remember what you were feeling the next time you look across your neighbors fence and think about why you’re wasting time with petty thoughts.
That’s it. Simple, right?
