Do you ever feel like you’re moving forward in life, only to find judgment just a few steps behind you? As much as you try to escape it, it always catches up to you.
This past week, judgment came at me from not just one direction but two. While working my way through a detox, my immune system threw in the towel and presented me with a cold that pulled me down in ways that made it difficult to function.
Even though I did my best to practice self-compassion by taking care of myself, I was still judging myself negatively for not getting enough done. I’m working on being more “human being” than “human doing,” but I’ll save that for another blog.
I was aware of what was happening, but I got caught up in the loop of judgment and kept pushing myself to do more when my body was telling me to stop.
