KEEP SMILING ~ Self-Growth, 16th Kislev, 5773

Criticism


Don’t criticize — give instructions. If you can’t give instructions, make suggestions. If you can’t make suggestions, keep quiet.


Don’t criticize. Mostly, it makes the other person feel bad. It embarrasses him, and he hates you for this. Even if this leads to the smallest amount of resentment, of bitterness, you don’t want it.

Give instructions. Tell him how to move forward — how to get beyond this moment, how to conclude the project — in a happy way. Help him achieve, succeed — and win the battle against being weak and small.

By Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Schwartz
