Criticism is Always Destructive


There is no such thing as constructive criticism

What is really happening is that the critic

Gets to feel superior under the guise of being helpful

And if the criticized one is upset

Then they are told they are too sensitive

And that the critic only had their best interest at heart.

Far better to encourage and show by example

Practice kindness, not criticism

With all you meet, including yourself

It brings out the best in everyone it touches



  1. Thank you for your comment tenderlytina. It made me think. So much of criticism is based on opinion and taste. I don’t think pointing out a mistake in math is the same as criticism as long as the correction is not accompanied by an attitude of disapproval.
