The lesson I learned…

Judge and be judged.

Judgment is a double-edged sword.

You can’t cast judgment

without hearing judgment from others,

even when they aren’t judging you.

You become your own worst critic.

You feel the need to justify your every move.

You defend every choice and every decision you make.

To avoid being judged.

People judge to make themselves feel better

about their lives, choices, circumstances.

If you are being judged, please know,

it has nothing to do with you

and everything to do with the one judging.
