A little more kindness. A little less judgment.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you—it’s something inherent.

Always follow your gut instinct, even if you do it a little late. It’s better to renege and risk being judged than it is to do something you don’t want to do because you’re afraid of how it will look.

You may never know what someone is going through, but if you notice any signs of pain—hostility, negativity, or oversensitivity—then odds are, you know how they feel. Respond to the pain instead of judging the signs.

People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things. So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt and anxiety produced by thoughts about the future and so on.

The world would be a happier, more peaceful place if we all tried to understand instead of judging, paused before reacting, and gave each other the benefit of the doubt instead of assuming the worst.

A lot of problems in the world would disappear if we talked to each other instead of about each other.

When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits—anything that kept me small. My judgment called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

Be a witness, not a judge. Focus on yourself, not on others. Listen to your heart, not to the crowd.

We can judge others or we can love others, but we can’t do both at the same time.

How people treat other people is a direct reflection of how they feel about themselves.

When we judge or criticize another person, it says nothing about that person; it merely says something about our own need to be critical.

The harder you fight to hold on to specific assumptions, the more likely there’s gold in letting go of them.

Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.

What you think of yourself is much more important than what other people think of you.

Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.

Live your life for you not for anyone else. Don’t let the fear of being judged, rejected or disliked stop you from being yourself.

Love is the absence of judgment.

Taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them.

If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.
