Turning off the Inner Critic and Embrace You

Why do people constantly judge themselves and others? 

Sometimes, we just want someone to come along and tell us how to do things right. That’s the funny thing about it.

We assume that it’s always others judging us. Yet, to often we’re the ones doing the judging. 

This constant self-judgement can affect our self-esteem and confidence.

And often what you’ll find is the worst type of judgement, the one that has the most profound effect on you, will be the judging you do on yourself. It completely drains our energy, we feel isolated, disconnected, even when we’re surrounded by all our success and blessings.

However, I want you to know, there is a solution and a way out. 

Allah (swt) says in the Quran,

 وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجًا   

“And whoever has Taqwa of Allah, Allah will make a way out for them.” 

That’s a promise from the One who created you and I, and brought you into this world. So, you will always find a way out if your Taqwa, your connection and reliance is on Allah (swt). 

So, we can find solace in this because we know with certainty that there is a solution. 

Through Taqwa, we can find the way out. 

Taqwa is commonly translated as having piety or fear, however comprehensively it means to have a connection with the Creator.

A connection of love and hope. 

Yes, a connection of fear too, but fear of falling foul; fear of doing things to displease your Creator. 

It’s the love and hope in knowing your Creator will always help you, as He (swt) always has. So, you need to look for that path, the path of hope and expectation from your Lord. 

Allah (swt) tells us very clearly & categorically, that if we rely on Him, turn to Him, and have hope in Him,  a way out will be provided.

Reliance on Allah means believing in the solution and that guarantees that He (swt) promises us. And knowing that it exists, even though you may not have found it yet. 

Relying on Allah doesn’t mean standing still. It’s about taking action, driven by the certainty of belief.

That’s why letting go of self-judgement is very important. 

There’s no area in life where your success can’t be reached. Your potential is absolutely unlimited if you rely on the All- Powerful, the One who gives us everything and without measure.

You lose your power by judging yourself. All you have to be prepared to do is, let go and rely on Allah.  

No more wishful thinking. All we need is having hope, reliance and trust in Allah, and follow that up with action. This opens the doors to a solution, change, transformation and the results we’ve been searching for so long.
