Is the feedback for you, or them?

“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”

Frank A. Clark

Does the criticism you deliver well from a place of love and encouragement, or is it delivered in a manner that attempts to substantiate your authority or superiority?

If you genuinely bring a perspective of love and service to others, this quote will resonate with you. If not, then it might seem “soft” or “weak.” The key here is to identify and understand WHO you seek to serve with the criticism you are giving. Is it about you or someone else?
