Fandangos provocative question #FPQ

The question:

Do you judge yourself by the same standards that you judge others? If not, are you harsher or more lenient on yourself?

I tend to judge myself very harshly. I judge others way less than I judge myself. I tend to take people at face value. But then I am very critical of the things I do or dont do.
I try not to be but its super hard for me. Being that I was abused as a child, and people told me over and over how everything was my fault, I grew up believing somehow that when things go wrong, its all my fault.
I dont think the same way about others though. When I hear about things going wrong in others lives, I automatically sympathise with them, I automatically think, oh what a stroke of bad luck, or how unfortunate etc etc.
I never judge others appearance, but I judge mine. I think partly I dont judge others looks as I cant see them or how they might look, and for this reason I am glad. Looks arent really important to me anyhow, whats important is the persons personality, and way of being in the world.
