“Criticism is the constant search for flaws in another’s character in order to prove that we are better. It is a symptom of envy, a way to diminish the other person to make you feel better as if there is something wrong with you because of what the other person is doing or has. When teachers, bosses, and parents give instructions with love, this is not the same as criticism. Such instructions given in love for our benefit are to be sought after so we can learn.
The mood and intention behind a person’s words and actions determine their nature. But criticism designed to make someone else appear bad in order for us to appear good is never beneficial. It’s an act that will backfire on the critic because it is mean-spirited and hateful. It is our nature as a god to be sweet, kind, compassionate, and dedicated to helping others to be happy and prosperous.”
