Judgement – Episode 104

vultureHow does having judgement differ from being judgemental? Can judgement be both a character asset and a character defect? How do you judge others? How do you think others judge you? How do you judge yourself? Today, Spencer and Anthony talk about judgement.

We used this outline for our conversation:

  • What does “judgement” mean to you?
  • How does it differ from being “judgemental”?
  • A reading in Courage to Change speaks of a “judgement ladder”, where everyone is either above or below someone else. Have you felt like you are on this ladder?
  • How do you judge others?
  • How do you feel judged?
  • How do you judge yourself? Are you harsher on yourself than others?
  • How can judgement be a positive attribute?
  • How has the program helped you to be less judgemental of others and yourself? To practice “good judgement”?
    • Are there slogans that help?
    • Any particular steps?

Anthony talked out a site that has phone meetings, phonemeetings.org. He also talked about the “Spire” that his wife got for him. Spencer mentioned Clancy I's first recorded talk.

Upcoming topics include caretaking and letting go. Please call us at 734-707-8795 or email feedback@therecoveryshow.com with your questions or experience, strength and hope. Or just leave a comment right here.

    I heard a lot of confessional honest. Thank you. Makes me feel better as I relate to most of it.

    I loved this episode! Here is a song that comes to mind when I think of judgment:

    Judge Not – Bob Marley

    Don’t you look at me so smug
    And say I’m going bad
    Who are you to judge me
    And the life that I live?

    I know that I’m not perfect
    And that I don’t claim to be
    So before you point your fingers
Be sure your hands are clean

    Judge not
    Before you judge yourself
    Judge not
    If you’re not ready for judgement-Woah oh oh!

    The boat of life is rocking
    And you may stumble too
    So while you talk about me
    Someone else is judging you
