Why is judging so harmful?

When we judge, we’re going against the reality of our biology.  We’re going against what’s real.  The reason this is the case is that everyone has to be who they are in the moment they’re in.  Who else can we be?   So, since we have to be who we are, what’s the benefit of judging ourselves?  We may feel good or bad because of what we’ve done, but what do we get out of patting ourselves on the back when something good happens, or kicking our butt because we failed?  Might it be better to just enjoy the good feelings about what we’ve done so we have a memory that reinforces what to do next time?  And let our feelings of failure make us take a step back to consider what we need to work on?
