[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] None of my business

So I Idren, I-sistren, The preaching and talkin' is done; We've gotta live up, wo now, wo now! - 'Cause the Father's time has come. Some people put the best outside; Some people keep the best inside; Some people can't stand up strong;Some people won't wait for long. Bob
Marley, Survival

Yesterday I was reading A Course in Miracles with one of my very good
buddies and there were so many penny dropping moments for me with
particular reference to judging people and being judged. I am super scared of being judged, and the very same thing that I am
terrified of, I do! Who knew???? My biggest fear over the past few months comes from being judged as not
only being incapable but also being different. I have been struggling with
it from the get go, having been pulled into an entirely new environment.
And as part of that I have rushed to judge others. Am I worthy? Am I doing what I am supposed to do? Am I looking the way I am supposed to look? Am I supposed to stay quiet? And it goes on and on What I have learnt is this: Be myself, set boundaries, choose courage over comfort and be kind You would know if you have made the right decision because you will be at
peace, and if you are not at peace, choose again What people think of me is really none of my business. Peace
