As a sometimes critic... One thing I ask myself is "what is my motivation" and "will this help anything" (course this is only when I am being conscious) And try to limit it to things that will forward rather than detract from the conversation. The type i have the most difficulty with is things that are scientifically inaccurate...
And then when dealing with other "What is their motivation?" When dealing with people that love me and do want me to improve but don't 100% understand my actual situation or how much I have already tried in that vein... But if i remind myself "they love me and just want me to not be in pain" then it is easier to try and help them be more constructive.
I've also been pondering what is judgement and what is discernment... esp when I am pursuing achieving difficult goals that require it.

Externally, Most people seem to view me as a bridge maker. I bridge diverse groups of people and connect groups that typically lack overlap.
My goal in life is "Brutal Honesty" which can be a complex thing but I believe it will save humankind if we can get there together.
Also this is my journal. Not yours. Act accordingly.
