I went for coffee with another member after group and about three times in every sentence we found ourselves using judgements, usually negative ones directed at ourselves (of course). We kept stopping one another and interrupting with the exclamation “JUDGMENTS!!!” just as our therapist does, laughing at how DBT and therapy is infiltrating our brains….
I wrote more about judgments and the value in practicing non-judgmentalism here.
So, goal of the week – notice when I find myself judging people, places, things (and especially myself), and turn the judgment into a description, as we discussed last week.
P.s. Is it ‘judgements’ or ‘judgments’…. I really do not know?
