Why are women so hard on themselves? What is self- judgement really about? Do men get caught up in self-castigation as much as women? Is judgement just part of the Yin female energy? Is being judgemental of others serving?
These are some of the questions we asked ourselves prompted by the NYTimes opinion article by Emily V. Gordon entitled “Why Women Compete With Each Other.”
The books “The UnTethered Soul” by Michael Singer along with Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book “Big Magic “ and her new podcast “Magic Lessons” were recommended as very thought provoking on these questions.
Does self- judgement get in your way?
