When­ev­er we say we should or must do some­thing or feel/behave in a cer­tain way, we are judg­ing our­selves. We are say­ing that there is some­thing wrong with what­ev­er we are cur­rent­ly feeling/doing, and that’s why we need to change (for some­one else’s sake). When you judge your­self this way, either con­scious­ly or uncon­scious­ly, on a reg­u­lar basis, you are deny­ing your Authen­tic Self, and dam­ag­ing your self-esteem. Here are some steps you can take to re-con­nect with your Authen­tic Self.”
