The focus is on judgment my justified journeymen!
When we judge ourselves or others we loose focus on what’s really important, how we act. As a person with multiple disorders. I am easily controlled by black-and-white thinking or better known as passing judgment.breaking patterns starts with recognizing the pattern and so my journey begins.
When we see things in two ways as either yes or no, right or wrong. Or as I like to say it is either “end of the world or the best damn day ever.” We lose the moment and disrupt our journey.
Black-and-white thinking can affect us all whether you have OCD, ADHD or anxiety. We can be controlled by the yes and no and do not see many layers of gray that influenced the outcome. What we should be focusing on is the journey and leave the judgment at the door. We all come with our own problems, hang ups and tragedies.We need to re-focus our thinking to move forward in our lives.
I know you are asking, how do we stop the judgmental thinking from ruining our journey? Well by taking a moment…Stop, breathe, and be mindful about it. Most of the time, there is more than two ways to consider whatever you may be judging.
If you are anything like me, I am far harder on myself whether it was my fault or not. I will internalize and brutalize myself like a tough steak just pounding away obsessing over every detail. I can tell you from experience nothing good comes from internal beat downs. The best method for me is to breathe and circle back. Changing my thinking and refocusing my energy from kicking my own butt to maybe organizing the whole house, again. Go with what works for you.
Whether it’s you or someone else, who has disrupted your force. Remember to stop judging yourself too harshly on your journey, keep moving forward life will move with you. I promise when you look back on whatever has you spiraling what seemed to be life or death now seems like a fly on a windshield.
