The more conscious you become, the more kindly you will talk to yourself, and you will feel yourself becoming more peaceful. You know this feels much better than stirring up your stress levels, and you will gradually let go of judging yourself so harshly.
All change has to begin with yourself, and when you notice the improvements in your life, then you'll be motivated to continue. You will feel much better about yourself when you replace negativity with encouragement, and you will find that you begin to observe others differently too.
The more you boost your own self-esteem, instead of dragging it down, you will also feel more benevolent to those around you. Instead of joining in with the group who criticize someone, you will feel more empathy for them, and know it doesn't feel good, or right, to make judgements.
As you've progressed with experiencing the deep relaxation of ZPoint, and know that you prefer to feel calm over feeling stressed, then you will avoid situations where judgements are made. You will understand that not only do you feel better when you stop judging yourself, you also feel much better when you stop judging others.
The old childhood saying of "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me", is completely untrue. It was said in childish defiance against a tormentor, but now you understand that harsh words stay with you forever.
Be prepared to say you're busy when others start being critical, and appreciate how much better that feels. Nobody is immune from the effect of words, so continue to use them kindly.
"If there's any message to my work, it is ultimately that it's OK to be different, that it's good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color." ~ Johnny Depp
"The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift." ~ Ellen DeGeneres
