Criticism, self-criticism, and other fables

Post date: 20-Oct-2009 09:49:22

How harsh is your criticism compared to your self-criticism? Does self-criticism justify criticism?

Others don't see, don't appreciate, and will surely undervalue your self-criticism, while at the same time think you're overdoing on criticism. As much as you're assured of your own righteousness, you're most likely to be the only one of that opinion. To criticised the critic is never unbiased. Criticism of others is always milder. Finally, self-criticism always feels harsh and just--to you!

So beware! Think thrice before throwing that stone...
