The Critic

There are people in your life that like, ok they may love, to be critical.  They will let you know what’s wrong with a situation, a project, or even you.

It can get old real quick dealing with people like this, but let’s take a quick look at why they may be like that.

1.  They are unhappy.
2.  They see the glass as half empty.
3.  They love to create conflict (drama).
4.  They can’t think outside of their box.
5.  They don’t want solutions.

Does the critic have the life that you wish you had?  Are these the qualities you want to be known for?  No, not at all.

Remember, that these people will always be around, but you don’t have to spend anymore time with them than you have to.

Your strength may eventually let them see the benefits of living a happy, glass half full, solution oriented life, but you don’t have to feel bad about living and leading the way that you do. 

Keep your focus on living life the way that you want and know that you should.  You don’t want to live life the way the critics do anyway.

I’m cheering for you.
