Judgment or Critiquing?

When we judge ourselves we often criticize the inevitable flaws and imperfections that come along with being human. The nature of judgment usually comes without the covering of compassion & love.

Critiquing on the other hand can be quite useful, as it more constructive in its nature – creating room for improvement.

The words that we speak to ourselves, the motives and intents of those words…affect us more deeply than the words of any one else.

We all stand in need of improvement in one area or another. It is wise when we speak compassionately, using the voice of kindness to ourselves. This does not mean that we are condoning those things that stand in need of correcting (restructuring or improving), it simply means that we’ve learned to respect & honor our sacredness as we continue our evolution of becoming. I call this love in action for oneself.

We hold the power of life & death on our tongues. Judgment is condemnation, it is destructive. Critiquing flows right along with Divine counsel, self-examination and healthy space for transformation – it’s a worthy investment.


I will speak words of wisdom & life to myself~

I have been given the authority to alter those things that are not in Divine order~

It is love, not condemnation that nurtures my soul~

Are you judging or critiquing yourself?

  1. This made me feel so good. Thank you for sharing. It is hard sometimes, to take care of yourself! There are so many other things to worry about, or think about. But– we matter. We all matter!


  2. This is such a good post! I am often talking with friends about judging/critiquing. Especially being a woman in today’s society. Holy moly! How easy it is to look in the mirror and focus on all the parts we DON’T like.. rather than looking at the mirror and realizing our beauty and looking into our soul/spirit/mind and figuring out if there are things we don’t like… how can we move forward and change it?



    1. We learn to lovingly accept all that we are Caroline. This has been my experience. It is though love that we learn to understand that our seemingly imperfections bring balance to the whole of who we are. Whenever we think that we are “suppose” to conform to “society’s” image…we lose ourselves. Courage, strength, self-awareness & self-acceptance is the rule of love. I appreciate your candid response to the post…


      1. Yes! I have been working on self-awareness a lot lately. Putting to practice metacognition and figuring out why action or thought B comes after action or thought A. The more that I am aware of how and why I work the way that I do the happier I am and I am able to find peace in His creation.


        1. An excellent place. Our differences are Divinely ordered. As we accept ourselves, we also learn to accept the uniqueness that God has stored within. Simultaneously working through the debris of uncertainties.
