Happy Monday, World! I read this quote the other day and had to save it; it was too good to not reflect on and share.
𝕁𝕦𝕕𝕘𝕖𝕞𝕖𝕟𝕥. Humans, if I am being honest, are judgement-making-machines and whether we recognize it or not, we place our judgements on other people based on our fears, our insecurities and our beliefs. 🧐 Perhaps we don’t say our judgey thoughts out loud, but we let them take up precious space in our minds.
I think it is human nature to want to feel like we are ‘right’. If we are ‘right’ it makes us feel like we are somehow less flawed and somehow more ‘put together’. It is an uncomfortable and vulnerable place to be, realizing that we are wrong sometimes - but I think it is important to admit that what I view as an ideal situation is not necessarily the ideal situation for someone else. I am allowed to have ideal standards for myself, absolutely - however what I want to work on is becoming more understanding towards others and THEIR ideas of what an ideal situation looks like. It takes a great deal of self love and mindfulness 🧘🏻♀️ to practice a life with less judgement and I want to always be working toward creating less judgement towards the actions of others. I want to become better at putting myself in other people’s shoes and try to imagine why someone might act or be the way that they are. I want to open my mind and my heart and make more room for compassion and understanding.
My flaws are endless; so instead of worrying about what other people are doing wrong I need to be focusing my energy on what I can be doing better for myself and for those around me. So as I tackle this week I want stay mindful of my thoughts and be more aware of the things that I allow to take up space in my mind. I want to remain humble and allow my heart to be soft; because I too, have f*cked up before and will surely will again. #makingmoreofmondays
