Try the yoga practice of Santosha. A practice of contentment. Santosha is not an emotion, but rather a state of consciousness. It is the ability to remain in the present moment, experiencing the happiness that can be found there, instead of the judgment that you might have once felt when you were so critical of yourself and others.
To experience Santosha:
Practice - being happy in the moment.
Practice - letting go of judgment.
Practice - seeing the light in each person you are in presence with.
Practice - being grateful.
Practice - feeling content.
Practice- being happy.
Even if these things are hard for you to do - practice.
Yoga is a practice.
