We often find ourselves battling with thoughts regarding the judgement of others, when in reality, strangers hardly think of us at all! Chris Hughes is a Access Consciousness professional, and he spent years worrying about how others were judging him on a consistent basis. He finally put an end to this anxiety by realizing that each worst case scenario was not that detrimental to begin with. Not only that, but constantly circulating presumed judgments in your mind can cause you to internalize the judgments in the future.
- What you are imagining might be very far from the truth regarding what people think of you.
- Don’t deny yourself the opportunity to have fun or learn something new because some people might be critical.
- Sometimes people hide important aspects of their identity, such as their sexuality, because they are afraid of what others might think.
“We stop ourselves from doing or being something because we let our minds run wild with the judgements and criticism we will receive if we do or be that thing.”
