Author: Barbara Goodhew


People that are rude with their criticism
Are the ones with alot of pessimism.

Energy should be used for encouragement.
Not for discouragement.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
But when critizing be nice.

To me I don't care about your opinions.
But with your nasty words it affects
others and they might give up.

I couldn't live with my words being the
cause of someones pain.

Good words Barb.People should try to encourage not discourage others, and be kind in their comments.You know how I feel about this, people often write as therapy,they open up their hearts, so don't need undue criticism.
