Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Going Beyond Judgmental Situations
Being judgmental or facing judgmental situations and thoughts can be quite off-putting, but once you start pursuing an inner growth journey, you are able change that around. Thanks to your inner exploration in the moment you apply a learning mindset to the situation versus a stagnant one that brings you nowhere.
As you grow more interested in the knowledge you gain about you, your inner conflicts, your inner core, what helps you to find balance and harmony, the external and all that it is made of, etc.; you start taking a look at the judgments you make to bring about solutions or heart-felt answers to why you’re going down this gossip/criticism/stagnant vicious cycle (route) instead of elsewhere. Once you begin this line of inner questioning, thinking, and exploration, you no longer interact in judgmental situations in a way that doesn’t bring about inner growth or loving and understanding words (thoughts, actions, etc.) to the situation.
Here are some ways to go beyond judgmental situations through inner growth.
- Pay close attention to your feelings any time you make a judgment or are judged. For every feeling you list, write how it’s brining you towards inner harmony, growth, and/or love. Any feeling that doesn’t hold something in pursuit of growth explore from a place of love to find if there are any deep hurts, insecurities, or fears that you haven’t uncovered, resolved, and/or let go of yet.
- Once a year take one of the judgmental situations you experienced and write about the three biggest takeaways for your inner growth journey, but also for anyone or anything involved outside of you that gained knowledge, inner harmony, and love from your approach to the situation.
- When you find yourself getting stuck in the judgment talk (gossip, criticism, etc.) with yourself or others, take five minutes to write about what this “talk” is really saying about you from within (inner core conflict), what is really bothering you about you (inner core fear or hurt).
Your turn – Share your inner growth thought of the day, a sentence, life examples, or action steps you take with new beginnings 😊
