And here comes the criticizers

I have come to the conclusion that this world is filled with criticizers. I am not suggesting people should not express their opinions, or have their own beliefs. In fact, I welcome that. But what I don't understand is the level of ignorance some people have; those who takes facts and twist them to appease their own egos. In other words, they don't want to actually "see" what is happening or what someone is doing. Instead they want to criticize, poke fun, or simply disregard it. There are people working hard to get answers to things that deeply affect us. Why do they do this? It's because they care and want to make a difference. This is a difficult task, and even more difficult to gain respect. I believe when someone is able to overcome those things, they shouldn't be put down in any form or fashion. There are two types of criticism: constructive and negative. Constructive criticism is correcting someone's mistake, and giving advice on how they can improve. The constructive criticizers I respect, because they are looking at the facts and try to understand what the person is doing. However, the negative criticizers take one fact and run with it. They don't try and see the situation for what it is; just look at one thing and put it down.  I guess this saying is true, people always have something to say whether good or bad.


  1. Critique in its truest form is healthy. Receiving an opinion from someone who is known to be 'true' is worth its weight in gold.

    I welcome critique in every aspect of my professional and private life. True critique that is! If an opinion assists me in evolving into a better human being, I will willingly listen - and if possible, make personal adjustments.

    However – criticism in its raw unkind form, is an issue that I have enormous battles with. My late father used to always say “If you can’t say something nice – say nothing at all” and as I age, I feel that I have carried his words of wisdom on my life path. I am no angel by any means and my sharp tongue has caused unnecessary pain to many people. But I will stand true to my word – if I have something to say, it IS true.

    Reflecting back on posts I have seen online about me – things that have been written – accusations which have been made . . . those things have almost killed me. I cannot understand how someone can brutally criticize – publish it – and get away with it! Or can they? Does karma exist?

    Pity the person who has to take his or her unfounded anger out on others!

    As I undertake a new venture in life, I know that there will be those who will slander everything I say and everything I do . . . fortunately though (perhaps I am being subserviently naïve here) but this time round, “Frankly my dear – I don’t give a damn.” Have an opinion about me? Good! It’s your opinion – keep it to yourself!

    That’s my true take on criticizers!

  2. People are always talking so, let them. It's those who don't have an imagination or never thought to do anything are the ones we should feel sorry for.
