Judging reactions – an exercise in introspection

by Margaret Willard

Nothing spotlights sagging self-esteem more than when people judge others. Growing up I was the supreme judge. As a fat kid (I had to wear “Husky” brand pants), I was constantly putting others down in an attempt to pull myself up.

Now as an adult, I remember Carol Kurtz Walsh’s and Tom Walsh’s wise “90/10 Rule.”

When I am in a situation and experience a strong negative emotional reaction to another and begin to judge, I assume that only 10 percent of my reaction is based upon the person and situation, leaving a whopping 90 percent that belongs to past.
