We make ourselves feel good and raise ourselves up by putting something or someone else down.
We feel good on some level but we are focusing on negatives and that's not the way to happiness or spiritual success.
Calling something bad does not describe what's good. Saying something is wrong does not communicate what's right, successful or appropriate.
Criticism can be very corrosive and counter productive. It often leaves the target deflated, demoralized and confused about what they should do.
They hear all about what's wrong and little encouragement or helpful insights describing what they can do to improve. Criticism and control occur so often together they are practically synonymous.
Since complaining about what is wrong makes us feel good we have no vested interest in trying to improve what is wrong. It leaves us stuck in misey and unhappiness.
Remember: Our Focus Determines Our Feelings!
To be Happy, Avoid The Fault Finding Feel Goods and All UnNecessary, NonProductive Negativity.
