by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – My Six Year Blogging Anniversary
Editor’s note: This is from the very first blog post Alexander wrote. Then she goes on to complain about meanies who leave negative comments on her blog. So which is it? Where is the line between someone correcting you and someone being critical for the sake of being negative? Aren’t these sometimes the exact same thing? Don’t they hold some possible validity even if you don’t want to hear it?
I had a light bulb moment the other day. I HATE it when Ken “criticizes” me…Other people can do it, but when he does my feathers get ruffled. I was listening to a program the other day and the man was saying his wife had to realize that when he was correcting her, it was just that…correction, not criticism. I thought, “WOW! I need to take Ken’s criticism as correction and learn from it!”
I have such a need to be perfect that I needed to realize I’m far from perfect and listen to his correction and learn…My pride and ego get in the way. Proverbs says a wise man listens to rebuke. Iron sharpens iron. Always learning…
