In our daily lives, judgments often arise instinctively, shaping our perceptions of others and the world around us. However, the true significance lies not in the judgment itself, but in our ability to dissect and examine its underlying factors. By delving into the roots of our judgments, we gain valuable insights into our own biases, beliefs, and perceptions. This process fosters greater self-awareness, empathy, and understanding, enabling us to cultivate more compassionate and informed interactions with others. Moreover, dissecting judgments empowers us to challenge stereotypes, confront prejudices, and promote inclusivity and acceptance in our communities. Ultimately, by embracing the practice of dissecting judgments, we not only enrich our own lives but also contribute to creating a more harmonious and equitable society.

  1. Why do I feel this way about myself/others? This is a fundamental question to understand the initial triggers or experiences that led to these judgments.

  2. What specific events or situations trigger these judgments? Identify the contexts or circumstances that tend to bring these judgments to the surface. Is there a pattern?

  3. What beliefs or values underlie these judgments? Examine the core beliefs or values that may be influencing your judgments. Are they realistic or outdated?

  4. Do these judgments align with my true values and principles? Assess whether your judgments are in harmony with your core values and principles. Misalignment can lead to inner conflict.

  5. How do these judgments affect my well-being and relationships? Consider the impact of these judgments on your mental health and how they influence your interactions with others.

  7. What would it be like to let go of these judgments? Envision a scenario where you release these judgments. How would it affect your self-esteem and relationships?

  8. Are these judgments based on assumptions or evidence (discernment)? Challenge whether your judgments are based on real evidence or if they are assumptions. Seek concrete evidence if possible.

  9. What positive qualities or strengths do I or others possess despite these judgments? Acknowledge the positive aspects of yourself and others that may be overshadowed by these judgments.

  10. Have I ever been on the receiving end of this judgment, and how did it feel? It invites you to recall personal experiences of being judged and the emotional impact.

  11. Have I ever been in a similar situation where I received empathy and understanding rather than judgment? Recall instances when you or others were met with empathy and acceptance  despite potential judgment. What can you learn from those experiences?

  12. Am I open to changing these judgments, and if so, how can I work towards that? Explore your willingness and readiness to change these judgments and consider specific steps or strategies to work on this change.
