Let It Be Episode 11: Judgement


This is one of those episodes where we don’t have the ‘answers’ because we’ve not worked through this one fully ourselves – so it makes for an interesting (and sometimes excruciating) conversation!

Brooke kicks off by being very hard on herself about how she was once a prisoner of her own ignorance (!!). She shares how being judgemental has cost her happiness, friendships and connection. She also talks about how advice from her mum has helped turn it around.

Me – well I’m one of those people who thinks that in being open-minded I’m not that judgemental. But the reality is, I’m as judgy as the next person. (It’s what you do with the judgy-ness, however, that matters … right?)

We also cover the perils of judging everyone by our own values and ponder whether some of the things we consider judgement are often simply a difference in opinion.

  1. Love it. I think most people would describe themselves as non-judgemental, but we are all in fact judgemental. It’s what we do or don’t do with those judgements (and how strongly we stick to our first one) that matters.
    I also agree that we often hear judgement where none exists. If you’ll forgive a sneaky post link, I blogged about it a while back and still think it’s relevant: http://emhawker.com.au/2013/05/not-everyone-is-judging-you.html

      Thanks so much for listening in Em. And since you’ve listened you know I completely agree with you.

      And you are always welcome to leave a sneaky link here!

      Haha – a good podcast is once where you get a mention 🙂

      I am trying to remember the earlier podcast you got a mention in. I think it might have been the one about entitlement 🙂

  2. I found myself reacting in a judgey manner to your podcast about habits, because I “heard” you judging ME when you said that “drinking x number of glasses of water is an ‘easy’ habit for everyone” (because, seriously, it isn’t). I love that we can all decide what habits to form, and where to reserve judgment, and both of those things just prove our humanity.

    I’m in “catch-up” mode with the podcasts and all of my blog-reading. So Far behind! Forgive me for commenting on two podcasts in one place? 😉 (The wink is because I know you do).

      Hahaa well you know I wasn’t being judgey right? Just fumbling around for a habit that *should* be easy to create 🙂

      1. No, I seriously *knew* that you weren’t judging me, but no matter how I’ve tried, and I’ve tried *numerous* times, I just CANNOT get myself to form a water habit. I think I consume enough liquids, but it must TASTE like something, or I’ll do without. Even bubbles “fool” my tastebuds enough, but I’m sure you’re referring to still water, right?

        I think the easiest habit to form will still be difficult for someone out there – who knew that YOUR easiest habit would be MY most difficult? 🙂
