Why you can’t be the Judge and Jury of your life

Imagine you are on trial about your life. You have one hour to present your case. What would you say? How would you present yourself to the masses?

You take the stand; you promise the judge that you will tell the truth and only the truth. However, you look over at the stand and notice that the jury looks just like you. You find yourself perplexed at the idea of taking the stand against yourself.

Being honest with ourselves comes with a price of pain and freedom. The pain comes from unpacking the experiences we’ve encountered and hiding from ourselves. Freedom comes from the ability to accept that pain and learn from it.

Every day we’re taking a stand and judging ourselves for our experiences. From the thoughts, we project and say the information we take and our actions. We find ourselves in a state of critical analysis with every moment, ut why?

Here’s the truth, you can’t be the judge and jury of your life. When you live a life in that way, you tell yourself that you cannot be trusted. But you’re more capable than that.

It’s time to let go of control and start trusting the universe will guide you through anything and everything.
