Maturity is realizing how many things don’t require your comment.

Anyone can find the dirt in someone. Be the one who finds the gold.

We often nitpick and criticize little things when we’re hurting. If you see someone else doing this, try not to take it personally. If that person is you, ask yourself, ‘What am I really upset about? And what can I do to address that pain instead of projecting it onto someone else?’

You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

Be an encourager. The world has plenty of critics already.

How people treat other people is a direct reflection of how they feel about themselves.

When we judge or criticize another person, it says nothing about that person; it merely says something about our own need to be critical.

When you are not attached to praise or criticism, an interesting freedom is yours.

One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and it’s perfectly OK.

Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.

People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be, not what you nag them to be.

Rejection is not fatal; it is merely someone’s opinion.

When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.

Live your life for you not for anyone else. Don’t let the fear of being judged, rejected or disliked stop you from being yourself.

There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.

Lean too much on other people’s approval and it becomes a bed of thorns.

The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.

Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.

What other people think of me is none of my business.

When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
