Critics are like eunichs in a harem; they know how it's done, they have seen it done everyday, but they are unable to do it themselves. - unknown
What a great quote. Critics are people we all have to deal with everyday. Personally, sometimes I feel like I have more than my share. Not only with my lifestyle change (weight loss), but just my lifestyle!
My DH gave me this quote this morning, and boy, was it right on time! It can be so hard to stand up straight and strong when others are trying to beat you back down. I keep my blinders on, stay focused on my own goals, but there are always detractors. I don't get it. Well, ok, I do in a sense. These are the kind of people that just don't see how they hurt. They think they are doing you a favor. They think they are giving you a dose of reality. I think, subconsciously, it makes them feel better to zing you one. But in truth, they only demean themselves.
So, remember, those that criticise you do not have your best interests at heart. They are not trying to raise you up, but bring you down. Surround yourselves with those that want to see you be the best you can, the rest are all eunichs!
