A recent sermon at our church dealt with this, as well. A good checklist for yourself, and the "Eeyores" in life!
negative, toxic, critical people who try to put you down
#inspiration Click above to see the whole story... including if the "criticizer" is someone CLOSE TO YOU... :-)
Some people who flood others with their distasteful #criticisms ironically cannot handle even just a drop of their own medicine.
People that criticize other people are just unhappy about something in their lives and they take the most pathetic measures to make themselves feel better.
Don't listen to negative people who put you down, pick you apart, or just look for faults and flaws.
"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth." ~Marcus Aurelius
There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing. -Aristotle
PEOPLE WHO CRITICIZE OTHERS ARE UNAWARE OF HOW MUCH PAIN THEY THEMSELVES ARE EXPERIENCING. TRULY HAPPY PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE NEED TO BRING OTHERS DOWN.
If I listened to all the negative, critical people in my life, I wouldn't be where I am now. Thank You God for seeing me through & giving me the chutzpah to stand on my own two feet. http://www.zorpia.com/
