“Imagine living your life without fear of being judged by others. You no longer rule your behavior according to what others think about you. You are no longer responsible for anyone’s opinion. You have no need to control anyone, and no one controls you, either.” ~ Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
Judgment of others leads to a need to control others. “You must think, say, and do as I do, or you are not acceptable!”
The bigger point may be, “If you do not think, say, or do as I do, I fear that I am not acceptable or have made a wrong choice.” When we become secure in ourselves, we release the need to judge and control others. Think of how much precious energy we all expend on this type of behavior, to one degree or another! What a waste…
Letting go of judgment is one of the most expansive things we can do for ourselves and others.
