Let's Talk About UnWarranted Criticism - Sue Motivates

Everyone of us will have times when we are criticized ,sometimes fairly but more often unfairly,creating stress in our hearts and minds and tension in our relationships. Somebody at work or in your social circle speaks negatively about you or blames you for something trying to make you look bad,or blowing some minor incident out of proportion. usually your critics have no interest in helping you,they are simply trying to drag you down.

I have noticed that some criticisms are most often based on jealously. It streams from a competitive spirit. Ypu have something that someone else wants. Instead of being happy for you,instead of keeping a good attitude , knowing that God can do something similar for anyone who trusts him,jealously rises up in the critical person. They try to cover therir own insecurity by being critical.

The more successful you are,the more criticism you will encounter. If you get that promotion at the office,don't be amazed when your critics come out of the woodwork.

One of the most important things I've ever learned is to celebrate other peoples victories. If your coworker gets the promotion you wanted, yes, there is a tendency to be jealous. Sure, there's a tendency to think, "why didn't that happen for me? I work hard. That's not fair."

If you are going to become better, you will need to know how to deal with critics- people who are talking about you, judging you, or maybe even making false accusations. These people are called "slingers".

The way you overcome unwarranted criticism is by not allowing you yourself to take revenge or even harboring an attitude that wants revenge. Don't sink down to their level and start talking badly about them. Most of all, don't get defensive or try to prove that you're right and your critic is wrong. No, the way you defeat a slinger is to shake it off and keep moving forward.

Last Note:
Keep your eyes on the prize; stay focused on your goals and do what you believe God wants you to do.

Love Always
