How many times have you felt like you are being judged by others?
I know that I have felt judged and been judged way more times than I like. Because of how horrible it always makes me feel, I try really hard to not pass those feelings on to others.
These feelings started way back in my teen years and spilled over from there. I know that from the time I was about 17 through the present my mom has not approved of many of my decisions. The sad thing is they aren’t “bad” decisions – just not what she would choose.
Now, I’m at a point in my life where it doesn’t bother me as much to not please everyone. I know that people are always going to disapprove and make assumptions without knowing all of the facts.
I try very hard to make sure that my boys don’t feel judged by me. Even though we might not agree about everything, they are entitled to make their own decisions and I want to respect them and support the choices they make.
Have you ever felt judged by someone who should be supporting you?
