    It Is All In The Spelling

    In my world there is "Criticism" and then there is "Critique" . The distinction for me is that to criticize is to give unsolicited opinions without also offering a better way. I can handle criticism and have done so many times, but I feel strong enough to learn from it, that does...

    Constructive feedback is very different in nature to the mean spirited put downs and cleverly disguised remarks of a verbal sniper. Life is far too short to try to please the people for whom nothing is good enough. Around my being I choose to blanket my heart and hold close those...

    Adressing The Constant Critic

    To my friend, a constant critic who's driving me nuts: I have a feeling whenever I'm with you, and that is I wonder how long will our friendship last. I feel I'm under constant criticism with you, mostly based on nothing. I've let most of it pass, because I'm not a rude person...
