I don’t know for sure, and it’s none of my business, but other people probably don’t judge me as much as I judge myself.
How sad is that?
I should be the one approving me, especially if no one else is. Who can I count on if not myself?
So, I wonder if I was less judgmental of myself, would I think less about what others think, and not believe that others are judging me?
It is an experiment that I believe is worth a try. Whatever takes the pressure off, right?
Since I’ve become a mom I am very interested in bettering myself so that hopefully my bad habits, self-deprecating nature and overwhelming self-doubt don’t get passed down to my son.
I want him to believe in himself.
I want him to know that he is of value, without question.
I want him to feel capable to use the gifts that he’s been given.
For me the self-doubt game has been exhausting, gone on way too long, and all around just sucks. It is not an arena that I want him to enter, if I can help it.
I don’t want him to judge himself, but I also don’t want him to judge others.
My hope is that he will be compassionate. I hope that he will be humble, and giving.
Some random thoughts for today…
