Criticism makes you hard and vindictive and cruel, and leaves you with the flattering unction that you are a superior person. Oswald Chambers paraphrased by P Murphy.

I thought I better post this one more time with all the chatter around town now that the RCMP station has run aground.

Frustrated performers become critics.

Summerland continues to hear from the talking heads in this town…that core group of organized complainers/critics that write the letters to the editor, etc, every time ANYone tries to accomplish something in Summerland.  A very wise old businessman writes that many times these critics start out as performers but they just don’t make it in that world.

Positive criticism comes from a genuine desire to bring about improvement.  Positive criticism can be done quietly.  Positive criticism doesn’t need a public arena — unlike negative criticism that yearns for an audience.

Frustrated performers become critics.
