That Hurts

Given the right situation, I don't mind criticism, corrective criticism. However, I am not a big fan of criticism with no rhyme or reason. I also don't like how the non-corrective criticism sticks with me for such a long time, wearing down my self-esteem and crushing my joy.

At times I ask for corrective criticism when it comes to my writing, raising kids and making parental decisions, with my job, and marriage. As long as the correction is laced with love and honesty, based on biblical principles, and the criticiser is looking to make me a better person with godly character, I can handle it, mostly, with a lot of prayer.

So, if you decide to criticize me, just know that you need to hug me while you are doing it, or end your critical comment with a colon and parentheses. That way the blow doesn't hurt as badly.
