There is only one way to avoid criticism:
do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
Life is full of twists and turns. Don’t be a lump. Do what you feel is right in your heart and allow the naysayers to chatter. Hold your head up high. Be kind. Be loving. Be you, loving beautiful you!
I needed this today.
That makes my day! ♥ Hope yours is wonderful!
i am learning to have compassion for those who criticize and judge because they are hurting.
I HEARTily agree Yvonne. Compassion is the key. ♥
I’m sure people would criticize you for doing nothing as well, but I hear the point you’re making and it’s good one! ❤
Thanks Diana! ♥
Hard for me to avoid criticism. I am a writer AND an editor. So criticism is a daily meal for me.
I would think that your job requires criticism, yet it’s in how you react and give it that makes all the difference! ♥ Criticism can be good when given in a kind, loving, helpful way.
There is a vast difference in constructive criticism and outright criticism from meanness. What you are doing is helping with kindness, not tearing down for the pleasure of it. Writers need someone who will tell the truth. 🙂
You are so right…thank you! ♥
So true and I needed the reminder!
Glad to send it along to you xoxo
❤ Yvonne xX

And more ❤ and hugs for you Yvonne, just in case. Xx ❤
Above all else, be kind. I’m late but the message is always timely that you have shared.
I HEARTily agree…kindness costs nothing but reaps much! ♥ You are never late…perfectly timed.
