We all have been criticized at one point in our life.  It can hurt a persons self-esteem and create problems other than what the original criticism is.  Be careful when criticising someone and make sure you do it out of love and to help that person.  This is called constructive criticism.  In the post above I was criticised but it did not hurt my feelings at all because I know these girls are hurting, searching for answers. They were not well formed in the home.  If you are a receiver of criticism be open to the criticism.  It could change your life.  All people should be open to truth and if you are being criticised for doing wrong them you should change your life for the better.  Be open to Christ and the Gospels.  We are all called to be Holy people and work for the goal of eternal life in heaven.  May God bless all.
