🙂  Yes, that is the famous irony of vilification of others that there is always a hidden vilification of self (and even of God) in the background. No problem, though- just consider the ancient teaching: as you forgive those that you have vilified, so your own sense of guilt will be relieved.

If God created what you vilify outside of you as well as what you may vilify about yourself, then God also created all of that vilifying, right? It is “normal” to be scared, then to vilify what scares you and then to even be scared to simply accept yourself as being perfect as God made you.

Beware of judging against any of God’s creation, including yourself and your life and your past. Be at peace now. Just as it is reported that Jesus said about two thousand years ago, “the time is at hand now.” Heaven is eternal. It is just a matter of how long you will condemn it and when you will stop.
