Criticism is a loose privilege, so just remember that each individual is unique and their development cannot be hurried or forced, but susceptibility to hurt is universal, quick and easily felt.

The disapproval and frustration of others can wither even the strongest of hearts, casting clouds over the brightness of the soul.

It is only through gentle encouragement that one reclaims the strength within to awaken loving awareness and respect for the beauty of the self and for all of life.
