Point to Ponder

The better you feel about yourself and the healthier and balanced your sense of self-worth,
the less need you have to criticize others.

I have searched unsuccessfully for the author of this quote—it is on point based upon what we are learning about self-esteem and brain function. Those who are in the habit of criticizing others frequently, tend to feel less competent than others in one or more areas of life. When they criticize others, the brain thinks in essence, “I would never but NEVER do or say that, therefore I am better than they are.” Problem is, the momentary sense of “better than” is fleeting at best, lasting only a short time. This means that they need to find someone else to criticize about something in order to trigger another shot of “feel better” about themselves. If you’ve not made a New Year’s Resolution—and only make one at a time (see Q&As)—this might be the one to embrace.
