Social judgement is one of the the biggest factors that holds people back.
- “Is this weird?”
- “Is this wrong?”
- “Am I annoying?”
- “What will they think of me?”
- “What do they think of me?”
The list of social judgement can theoretically go on forever. For some people, it does go on forever. However, I know that you are not here to hear a list of judgments. You want a solution.
The solution is this: try to quell your negative thoughts for a moment and take action. You are (often) imagining social judgments that are simply not true.
However, if the social judgments are true, then you are probably exaggerating their effect.
