Do People Judge Me Or Is It Just My Anxiety

It feels bad when you believe that someone is judging you, whether strangers or family. When people get judged, they start to believe that there is something wrong with them and lose self esteem drastically. The worst part is that most of the times, the assumptions or judgements are wrong.

Do you want to understand why people might judge you? Well you need to understand what most people don't which is that only you can judge yourself. That's a fact. The fear of judgement is almost universal with people who grew up in home where the parents were disapproving of them but anxiety plays a big role in this where if you suffer from anxiety, the feeling of judgement gets worse.

" So how do I stop this negative cycle from continuing? I don't want people to judge me!"

Well you need to start being more positive and confident. You need to start seeing the good in people. A great start would be forgiving yourself, specially your past. Start thinking of mistakes as not mistakes but rather than as of learning experiences. Each mistakes hold the chance to get better and move forward. Give yourself multiple chances if you fail but make sure to not repeat the same mistakes over and over.

Another way to feel less judged is to say or do something nice for someone. Even volunteer for the less fortunate. Doing the opposite of a negative person helps you be a better person and get a better self esteem. Do something kind, something compassionate for others. Make them feel better and you will automatically feel better.

The truth is, only your opinion on yourself matters. If you feel bad when someone judges you, stand up for yourself and remember that their opinion is not the truth. Everyone will have people in their life who criticise them for every little thing but the end goal should be doing what you enjoy and having a drive in life which helps you achieve your goals efficiently. No one is allowed to judge you unless you let them.
