There’s no such thing as constructive criticism. Constructive criticism is an oxymoron—a contradiction.
When we are criticizing someone, we are assessing that person’s actions and then judging it as right or wrong, good or bad. Who are we to judge? It is only our opinion. I am not referring to moral rights and wrongs or the acts of criminals. I am referring to the everyday critical remarks that seem to flow all too effortlessly from our mouths about someone else’s preferences that do not match ours.
Criticizing is not a good use of our time. Time is too short and valuable to spend it condemning someone else’s preferences.
Today, refuse to criticize anyone, including yourself. You will find the outcome amazingly positive. The voice of the human rights movement, Odetta Holmes, said, “The better we feel about ourselves, the fewer times we have to knock somebody else down to feel tall.” –Dr. Sandy
