Sheila Ojei, Seun Awogbade & Lydia Sobogun Discuss Why Women Judge Women



This has to be one of my favourite webisodes of the Inspire Series. My guests, Sheila Ojei, Seun Awogbade and Lydia Sobogun weren’t only upfront about how judgmental they have been in the past but, I believe, we took a big step towards understanding the reasons behind ‘judgmental women’.
As external as the activity of judgement and criticism is, my guest and I discovered that it is fueled by our own internal insecurities and fears. We want acceptance, praise, and validation and to be ahead. When we don’t get what we want, we act out. We become mean girls, make harsh statements and put others down. Being judgemental becomes a way for us to hide our insecurities and fears instead of being open about who we are and our vulnerabilities.
We are so aware of our inadequacies that the fear of being unaccepted by others, sometimes forces us to become someone else. Sometimes its easier to become the person sitting beside you than the person you see in the mirror. It is easier to follow what society says, instead of digging deeper into who you are and what you are called to be  – Glory Edozien
