It doesn’t matter where you are in life and what you do. Anywhere you go and wherever you work, you will face a situation where people judge you. They don’t even know you and become judgmental of you. It can bug and stress you out. It can take you away from your comfort zone.
Don’t Be Judgmental Yourself
First things first, don’t act like the person judging you. Don’t jump to conclusions or make assumptions about them. Otherwise, you are exactly like that person. Don’t be rude or inconsiderate either…
Keep An Open Mind
Keep your head clear and have an open mind. Maybe that person did not have great experiences in the past… Or maybe they are not in a good mood… You can give them the benefit of the doubt.
Choose to Respond Or Not…
This is an important step. In some situations, it’s important to respond accordingly to the judgment. In other scenarios, it’s probably best to let go and take yourself out of the situation to conserve your energy.
Detach Yourself from the Situation
Ultimately, that person’s judgment reflects more about he or she than you. So removing yourself from the situation and detaching yourself might be in your best interest.
