If you can see, hear or feel, you tend to critique. It’s a human nature that is found in all but can be found in different ratios of usage. Some go to the extreme whereas some stay medial of their views. In cases of external critique, you are not affected. But when it comes to self-criticism, it does not end much well.
We do not just end our critique with others, we bring it along to ourselves as well. That is when things don’t go the way they are supposed to. We end up not liking what we see, and we also compare ourselves to the rest of the world, while losing focus of all that we are in within ourselves.
Self-esteem comes down and so does confidence. You start downgrading yourself and eventually the world will also follow after you. When that happens, it’s not the world to blame but yourself, of what you had brought to your own door.
Look at yourself for improvement, not for disprovement of what you are. Be proud of yourself and you will realize the world looking at you in the same way.
“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.”
― Aldous Huxley
