A mentor once told me:

We judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their actions. Try to judge yourself by your actions and others by their intentions.

Unless you have crippling anxiety, in which case it’s reversed.

@jezzy my wife has crippling anxiety. I would say it is both. She judges herself by her actions and intentions and others by the actions and intentions. All of which is with slant of herself with positive intent and others with mal-intent.

I feel it. I didn’t mean it as the same for everyone, I just know in my experience I’m extremely critical of my performance in anything regardless of my intention, and find myself overly forgiving of others’ actions by assuming they have better intentions.

My perspective could be a meta example of what you said, though.
