On this day of your life I believe God wants you to know …… that the rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
Charles Buxton said that and he was right.
There are very few good reasons to sharply criticize anyone,
least of all your idea that you know a “better way.”
Continual critical comments with an edge can deeply undercut confidence in a loved one ~ and isn’t that the last thing you would want to do?
