“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth, without destroying his roots.”   Frank Clark

Criticism can be helpful or hurtful and it all comes down to what is behind the criticism when it is given, and the vessel or the person that is the author of it.

We have either been the recipient of criticism, which has been painful, or we are the ones who are giving the criticism, which can also be painful.

“There are two sides to the coin of criticism. When you give destructive criticism, the other person is hurt. When you give constructive criticism, the other person is helped.”  June Hunt

In today’s episode, Debi shares how criticism, when it comes from the wrong motive or from a wounded heart, will leave emotional scars, and impact our relationships.

Children who grow up with overly critical parents, will become and follow the same pattern of criticism within their own families.   It becomes a cycle, a generational cycle.   

This cycle can be broken and there is healing for the one who has been affected by a critical spirit. 

Debi encourages you to reach out and schedule a free call with her.   Her heart is to help you break free from the impact of a critical spirit.
