The effects of judging people are astonishing! There is a lot of damage that is done on those who have been judged. Remember, a dirty look is also considered a judgment. Let’s not forget that 70% of our communication is non-verbal. That means, most of the time, we communicate with our bodies.
The way we stand, the way we walk, our facial expressions, smile versus no smile, frowning, raising eyebrows, turning body away, rolling eyes, etc…these are all ways that we communicate in.
Any negative non-verbal communication can leave a permanent mark. It can literally shake the person. It can make them fall apart or break down. This may not happen to everyone, but there are sensitive souls out there.
For them, these judgments can change one’s belief about themselves. They may think that they are less and unworthy. They may think their ideas and point of view are useless. When they experience negative judgment over and over again, they may start to believe in the judgments of others. Now, that is where it becomes dangerous. Some people may believe this and some might let it just brush off of them…. It is really important to be aware of your body language and tone of voice. These can either build or destroy humans. What you do to others will be done on to you-some day!
Thanks and with love
