Self-observation without judgment

“Release the harsh and pointed inner
voice. it’s just a throwback to the past,
and holds no truth about this moment.

Let go of self-judgment, the old,
learned ways of beating yourself up
for each imagined inadequacy.

Allow the dialogue within the mind
to grow friendlier, and quiet. Shift
out of inner criticism and life
suddenly looks very different.

i can say this only because I make
the choice a hundred times a day to release the voice that refuses to
acknowledge the real me.

What’s needed here isn’t more prodding toward perfection, but
intimacy – seeing clearly, and
embracing what I see.

Love, not judgment, sows the
seeds of tranquility and change.”

~ Danna Faulds From “One Soul”

  1. What DK said. A wonderful post, and one that rings so true. I stuff my “little green monster” back in his jar regularly. Have realized that his “you’re not (fill in the blank) enough” prattle is of no help. 😉

    1. I too have to do that. I work with so many folks that need for this to be internalized. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. It looks like you are in the middle of winter. Take care, Bill

    1. Sometimes introspection is a painful process and looking at ourselves in not all that pleasant. Just close your eyes and create your own scene. Hope you have a good weekend
