“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.
“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
I read this book a few years ago at school, but the quote didn’t stick with me until later on. When I eventually realized how true it is, I memorized the quote and recited it in my head whenever I felt critical of someone. It has made me more perceptive and empathetic to some extent. I believe criticism is useful when it’s constructive, but when it’s simply derogatory it creates nothing but an unwanted resentment from the person you’re criticizing. This just comes to show how powerful language is.
You don’t have to do the challenge if you don’t have time, or don’t want to 🙂
