Releasing The Fear of Judgment


Where does fear of judgement come from?

The fear of judgment can come from a variety of sources, including childhood experiences, past failures, social pressure, and personal insecurities. For example, if you were criticized or belittled as a child, you may have developed a fear of judgment that persists into adulthood. Similarly, if you have experienced failure or rejection in the past, you may worry about being judged negatively in the future. Social pressure and comparison to others can also contribute to the fear of judgment, as can personal insecurities such as low self-esteem or feeling inadequate. Ultimately, the fear of judgment can be complex requiring a personalized approach to overcome.

How do we release this fear?

Releasing the fear of judgment is really important for personal growth and happiness. In this blog article, I wanted to share some approaches that may help you overcome your fear of judgment.

Approaches to Overcoming Fear of Judgement

  1. Recognize that everyone experiences this fear: It’s important to remember that feeling the fear of judgement is a natural human emotion. Everyone experiences it at some point in their lives.
  1. Identify the root of your fear: Try to understand where your fear of judgment comes from. Is it due to childhood experiences, past failures, or social pressure? Once you know the source, it’s easier to address the fear.
  1. Challenge the fear: Ask yourself whether the fear of judgment is rational. What is the likelihood of the negative outcome you fear? Is there evidence to support your fear or is it just your mind playing tricks on you?
  1. Reframe your mindset: Instead of seeing judgment as a negative thing, try to view it as an opportunity to learn and grow. Feedback can be valuable if you allow it to be.
  1. Focus on your strengths: Focus on your positive qualities and strengths instead of your perceived weaknesses. Remind yourself of your accomplishments and what you have to offer.
  1. Challenge negative self-talk: When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts about yourself or what others may think of you, challenge those thoughts. Ask yourself if there is any evidence to support those thoughts, or if they are just assumptions.
  1. Practice self-compassion: Be kind and gentle with yourself. Recognize that everyone makes mistakes and that it’s okay to be imperfect. Treat yourself as you would treat a good friend. Again, remember that no one is perfect, and it’s okay to make mistakes.
  1. Surround yourself with supportive people: Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you. Spend time with people who make you feel good about yourself.
  1. Take small steps: Start by facing your fear in small ways. Start with small, manageable situations and gradually work your way up. Perhaps share your ideas with a trusted friend, take a public speaking class, or join a supportive group where you can practice being vulnerable.



Remember, overcoming the fear of judgement is a process that takes time and practice. Be patient and kind to yourself. Celebrate your progress along the way and keep moving forward towards a more fulfilling life.

As a coach, my aim is to help people overcome their fears and take actionable steps towards achieving their goals. With that in mind, I would like to leave you with some “heartwork” to help you face your fear of judgment and move towards your goals.

Think about one small step you can take today to move closer to your goals, despite your fear of being judged. It could be something as simple as sharing your ideas with a trusted friend or colleague, signing up for a course or workshop to improve your skills, or even just taking a few minutes to journal about your fears and how you plan to overcome them.

Whatever step you choose, remember that it’s important to take action and push through your fears. The journey may not always be easy, but with determination and a positive mindset, you can achieve anything you set your heart to.

I hope this heartwork helps you take that first step towards facing your fear of judgment and moving closer to your goals. Remember, I am here to support you every step of the way.
