A to Z Challenge: C is for CRITICISM

It’s easy to be critical. Other people often don’t behave the way you would, so you criticise them. But do you really understand? Do you know all the reasons why they acted as they did? Or the reasons why they didn’t act?

People who suffer from social anxiety worry about what others think of their behaviour. The worry itself causes them to act differently from the way you might expect, or not to act at all. So…

Don’t be quick to criticise others. You don’t always know what lies behind their behaviour.

I might be critical observing someone I don’t know, but not usually. I tend to be very uncritical with someone I know and usually try to approach criticism as tactfully as possible with the intent to help them. Criticism should be a teaching and learning experience for both parties.
