Hey, Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose, the short, actionable podcast for mamas who want more. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama, let me ask you a question, Have you ever been judged for something? Probably! Right? You’re probably in your car raising your hand. You’ll be hard pressed to find someone in this world that has not been judged. Now, have you not done things that you want to do for fear of judgment? You’re not alone. I mean, you may be alone in your car right now. But you’re not alone from the fear of judgment. And Mama’s daily dose is…oh, my God, are they going to judge me? Let’s get movin before we get interrupted.

Oh, judgment… judging, we tell people, not to judge others. But we do judge others than we fear getting judged by other people. It’s just human nature to judge and compare one thing to the other. But when that judgment, or really the fear of the judgment is holding you back from doing things that you want to do, that’s when we really got to take a hard look at who is this that is judging you, and what is the judgment.
So the rest of this episode is pretty much going to be your action. And I want you to think of something that you have held back from doing because you thought someone was going to judge you on it. Now, I want you to specifically call out who you think is going to judge you on it and what they’re going to say. It’s not like people will say this, my family will say this, I want you to say Susie’s gonna say this. Johnny’s gonna say that. And then Mark over there. He’s definitely going to say this and think this. Once you have those, I want you to look at those opinions. And are they true? Are they true to you? Do those people’s opinions really matter? Because really, opinion, an opinion, is just their point of view. It doesn’t have to be your point of view. And then after that, worse comes to worst… Let’s say you go through with this thing. And Mark and Susie, say these things about you and judge you? What’s the worst that could happen? What’s the absolute worst situation that could come of that? Look at that, and see if it’s really that bad. Because usually what happens is when we look at it, when we look even worst case scenario, it’s really not that bad. And sometimes taking that chance, taking that chance at judgment is worth way more than that possible worst case scenario.
