“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one…just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

I am so grateful for the knowledge of (most of) my own shortcomings. It often stops me from being critical of others. It’s easy to criticize and its fun. There is that kind of sick guilty pleasure in it and so many people who can be said to deserve it. People in positions of power and authority are targets by their very presence. Yet being critical of others far too often serves as a smokescreen for our own flaws. If I criticize the lady who cut in front of me in the grocery check-out, perhaps no one will notice that I have 30 items in my cart in the express lane. It may even make me forget about it. Far better for me to work on my own stuff. This isn’t as easy as it may seem . I’ve been working on it however.
Blessings, G
