NON-judgement Day!

A few words about judgement:

“As NVC replaces our old patterns of defending, withdrawing or attacking in the face of judgment and criticism. We come to perceive ourselves and others, as well as our intentions and relationships, in a new light. Resistance, defensiveness, and violent reactions are minimized…”All moralistic judgments, whether positive or negative, are tragic expressions of unmet needs.” — Marshall Rosenberg, PhD.

“An enemy is one whose story we’ve not heard.”  — Gene Knudsen-Hoffman

“You have no influence over people who can sense your underlying contempt.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

And this one, just right for today, the day some say is the end of the Mayan Calendar: “Judgments of others contribute to self-fulfilling prophecies.” — Marshall Rosenberg, PhD.
