Happy Thursday, friends! I have a bit of a lower-key day today. Planning to do some writing + editing work at home, and then I’m meeting up with my sweetie for dinner. Thinking about whipping up a batch of these classic cookies as a treat! Allyn is heading out tomorrow for a boys’ weekend with his best friends from high school, and I’m going to drop him off at the airport in the morning. It’s a rowdy sports weekend, so I’ve got my fingers crossed nobody hurts themselves. #rememberyourenot18anymoreguys 😉
Moving on to today’s topic… a few people have asked what questions we are discussing in the Young Adult Community Circle I am leading at my church, intended to spur deeper, more meaningful and authentic conversations. I thought I would share these questions here on the blog, in case they spur some deeper conversations of your own — with longtime friends, new acquaintances, family members, loved ones, or even perhaps with yourself! These are great questions to journal about as well. 🙂
Community Circle Questions : Week 2
- In what ways do you notice yourself judging others?
- What are you most judgmental about? What do you get annoyed by? Why do you think this is?
- What do you judge yourself most about? Why?
- What do you feel others judge you about? Have you ever had an experience with someone else negatively judging you?
- How does your self-perception differ from others’ perception of you?
- How can you step away from judgment and give others, and yourself, more grace?
“When you judge others, you do not define them; you define yourself.”
