“What angers us in another person is more often than not an unhealed aspect of ourselves. If we had already resolved that particular issue, we would not be irritated by its reflection back to us.” Simon Fuller
Self-evaluation is one of the most difficult areas of life. The challenge of taking the time to look in the mirror and examine our own character to see how it measures up can be especially frustrating when we look at others.
Experience has demonstrated that people who are critical of others are most often struggling with the same problems in their own life.
Obviously, this is not absolute, but it does hold true in many cases. What that means is that we need to be compassionate to the criticism of others.
The manner in which we approach criticism can make the difference in how we evaluate ourselves and the approachability of our leadership.
We can then work on correcting the unresolved issues in our lives enabling us to see more clearly how to help others in there. Please read Matthew 7:1-5.
