We have all felt judged at some point in our lives. Even as an adult, it can hurt to feel as if others are judging different aspects of us. Whether it be our looks, clothing, or actions, it can be painful to be judged. Remembering that you can only control your actions may help you to center yourself and remember your worth. If you are feeling judged, here are a few points to keep in mind. 


Know Your Triggers


Try to take notice of what triggers your feelings of being judged. Who is involved? What was said? What were you doing? When we understand our triggers, we can learn more about our mental health and how we think. Understanding your triggers gives you power over them. Everyone is triggered by something; it’s natural. There is no shame. Working through triggers can be challenging, but it is worth it. 


Work on Self-Esteem


Work on your self-esteem. When we know our worth, we will be less affected by other’s judgment of us. Developing strong self-esteem can be difficult for many people. Try to analyze what makes you feel good about yourself. What are your best qualities? You are a great person, and learning how great you are is a powerful thing. 


Do What You Love


Remember to do what you love. If you feel judged, you may not mind as much if you are doing what you love. Mental health can be complicated. You may not always understand why you feel like you do. Focus on what makes you happy. Try to get to a place where you just don’t care whether or not other people judge you. Chances are, anyone who judges you doesn’t know you that well. Focus on yourself, your health, and your happiness. 


Feeling judged is never a comfortable experience. It can make you feel unworthy, unaccepted, and not liked. We all need to feel a sense of belonging, and we all need support and friends to lean on. If you already struggle with mental health issues or addiction, the addition of feeling judged can be overwhelming and crushing. Know you are not alone.
