I am the kind of person that follows what people do and not what they say.
This has served me well, until I found a blind spot … myself🤣
See, in my perfect world I want people to look at my actions and so it becomes a bit frustrating to me when I have to explain myself. Having said that, I view it as a great empathy exercise to see which actions or words communicate best what I am about. Not so much an issue anymore … more of an opportunity area…
Enter judgment of other people. More specifically, how sure am I that I am not blowing somebody’s actions out of proportion? In other words, just as I don’t like it when people misunderstand my actions, how sure am I that I don’t return the favor to others?
I’m a firm believer that relationships are best mirrors of ourselves; none more so than romantic ones. Even though I’m getting close to 40s and this is my second marriage, I am quickly learning … that I still have much to learn 🤦♂️
Next time I’m doubting somebody based on their actions, I will ask myself am I upset, because trust has been TRULY breached or because I tell myself a story that I am not good enough?
After all, it’s just so much easier to point a finger rather than admit that finger pointing is typically done by an insecure person?
How do you like to be judged? How do you judge others?
Searching for something better? Don’t know what you want? What’s missing?
