People criticise for many reasons; insecurity, fear, compassion, anger, expectation (and more)
- Ask God - Am I pleasing YOU?
- Affirm the truth
- Assume the best
- Address the critic - when the information is inacurate
- Avoid chronic critics
- After I check the facts
- After I check my motives
- After I earn respect
- After I get permission
Proverbs 18:13 - He who answers before listening—that is his folly and his shame.
