Here’s some advice a fellow Scientologist named Lauren proffers on her blog. I think it’s a very good idea, so I thought I’d pass it along.
There is nothing wrong in seeing that something is out of place or being done the wrong way and needs to be corrected.
What is wrong is if you are going to stand in judgment of that thing and criticize or if you are going to take effective action in order to help it. To point out the faults in something only aids in making those faults stand out further.
Too often in life we become critical and ignore or use harsh words or attitudes towards the person in an attempt to bring about a change. Or worse tell someone else how we feel about that person or thing’s faults.
We all have our problems and I think the more we can work to improve our own problems and help where we can to improve the problems that we see around us we will help to make the world a better place.
There is an old saying “You have to clean out your own closet before you criticize another for not having their’s clean.”
Take a look next time you feel critical and see if there is something you can do to help or if there is something that you can improve in your own self.
