The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Criticism, especially pointy little pieces of it, pierces. 

You can gauge a person by the size of the criticism.

And...

Constructive Criticism is an Oxymoron.

You too can see the positive things in people...just open your mind then your eyes.

When you have a positive mental attitude you are less critical of others.

When you have an agreeable personality you are less critical of others.

When you want to and think you can...you will see the best in people.

Beware: a dose of your own medicine could be a tough pill to swallow.

Most of us have heard the proverb "Physician heal thyself."

The moral of the proverb is fix your own defects before you criticize other people's defects

And the essence of this and other similar proverbs is constructive criticism is an oxymoron

Constructive criticism is an oxymoron: that's a rule to live by.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

At first, people encouraged us to take action.

Then, of great surprise to us, bigger people began a life-long assault aimed at proving otherwise. 

Give yourself injections of that oxymoron, Constructive Criticism

Create a Do It Yourself Hormesis Program, aimed at thickening your skin and building your tolerance for other people's shortcomings. 

CAUTION: If you are like most people then your initial tolerance for criticism will be unbelievably low...so start with very low doses of self-criticism. And, build the doses up slowly over time...until you are able to face your screaming vein-bulging face in the mirror. 

When they are messing on the floor, sometimes you just gotta put down your newspaper.

It actually happened just after the turn of the century...amidst double entendre & a wicked sense of humour.
