Judged and Found Wanting?

We’ve all had the feeling of being judged and found to be less than someone else thinks we should be, but have you ever stopped to consider the kind of person who would be judgemental, especially towards something with mental health issues?

Sometimes it’s easy to think you’re less than them because they’re saying so, but isn’t judgement cruel and unkind? I would say that’s far worse than struggling with your own mind for good reason.

However, the stronger you get, the more centred you become, the sooner they will fade to the edges of your life and disappear once and for all.

Here’s something I wrote in 2004 when I was feeling judged and found wanting, from all sides.

The Eyes of the Judges

Ten times ten

And ten times one thousand

Everyone watching everything – everywhere

Nothing and no one escapes those looks

Seeing – knowing – judging

Glowing with their superiority

Their eternal rightness of being

While the watched struggle and strive

Just to stay sane and alive

With no time for perfection

Or to wallow in the luxury of being right

No thought to impress

Trusting that in the next breath

The next instant

Everything will change

Those who are wrong will be right

The righteous will fall from grace

And the rest of us will continue being real

Knowing that we are enough

Flowing with the process of life

Free and easy because we’re free of them

Slightly concerned about the price of jam

And tomorrow’s weather

That is all
