Often Those That Criticize Others Reveal What He Himself Lacks – Shannon L. Alder

Acting critical is a part of human nature. And this is sometimes a good thing – being critical can help us make better decisions and keep ourselves safe. However, our criticism can often be unhelpful and pointless, as well. One example of this is when we excessively judge others who we do not know or who cause no harm.

If you find yourself being pointlessly critical from time to time, one good thing to do is to look inward. Ask yourself, why you are critical of this other person or thing? Often times, we’ll find that what we criticize and don’t like about others brings up things we don’t like about ourselves or our own situations. Our criticism can come from a place of deep discomfort that has only to do with ourselves.

If we’re aware of this discomfort and what makes us act critical, then we can start improving ourselves and feeling better. And trying to feel good is definitely a worthwhile effort.

  1. Oh boy, that’s a good one. Thanks for this. To steal some magic from John Lennon, imagine a world where everyone did as you recommend here?! You’ve got me thinking about the times I’ve been overly critical…

  2. I criticise others but I may also be guilty of the same thing even in a small way. This is made worse when I use this wrong and make it into a right for myself. This is a worse kind of wrong than just criticizing others.

  3. It is a very good point of view. Thanks for sharing!
