If we had no faults of our own, we would not take so much pleasure in noticing those of others. ~Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld

I, for one, have a very hard time not looking at a person and finding their faults. I don't WANT to do it, and most of the time it is just a thought that pops in my head. I very rarely put words to these thoughts, but I AM human and it does happen.
I am very self conscious. I see my flaws as if they are magnified 100x, and I will often point them out before someone else can comment.
I know I find the fault in others as a way to try to make myself feel better on the inside. This is an awful, hurtful practice. This is something I have been working on for the better part of my adult life. I have spent many hours working on my faults, and trying to beautify myself so I can better appreciate the beauty in others. I want to live by the words - Imperfection is perfect.

Be blessed my Spark Family

    For every negative you find about someone, try to think of a positive. Maybe instead of trying to cut out a habit, it would be easier to start adding IN a healthy habit. Pointing out something positive or good about someone will allow you to do the same for yourself. The good in life lingers more than the bad; you'll get there.

    I understand what you are saying. It is definitely a way to make ourselves feel better. Since you are aware of it though, it is something that you can work on. It def takes practice. I do however think that it is something we all struggle with regardless of how "perfect" we are. It is something that only we can do something about. You are awesome for writing this as I see this in myself as well! Thanks!
