Shame and criticism

Here is the problem with most criticism:

We judge others in areas we are most vulnerable to shame ourselves.

So when we criticize someone about their weight, we have negative self talk about ours.

When we criticize someone’s writing, we wish we were writing something better.

In our social media-driven world, it has never been easier to hide in the shadows and throw darts.

Ambiguity is the enemy of productive criticism.
