Self Criticism

"On the Acceptance of Personal Criticism" by Vexen Crabtree (2002)

Criticism is a good thing to reflect upon - but it must be reasonable, even if it is not constructive. I will accept criticism, but when laced with little or no tact I may be forced to simply deny the given criticism.

hi, Vex

based on the fact that you took me off as an lj budd, and the fact that you or somone who looks just like you alway's eiver ignors me compleatly or says somthing to the power of 'hi Yelow Rat, Vexen' and bounces off quickly, and the fact that when i wrote 'Squirrel' in peanuts just prier to going to Slimlight you said 'i am a fan of Yellow' and the fact that you said in responce to an oldish comment you admitted 'i know YellaRat in rl, btw' and the fact that i see nothing wrong with you for critisism an fact i'd like to know how you mannage to be so near perfect so that i could do the same and the fact that the prevois fact was not sycasm *BREATHZ* i'd LOVE for some of Vexen Crabtree's critisism of Yellow Rat "FoxySquirrel" Fairydiddle

my only adivise to you is, if you happen upon a bucket full of black walnuts at the end of a rainbow, DON'T eat the,;~}

Hey don't worry that I took you off LJ, I moved to London a few monthes ago and I removed a load of St Albans people.

No-one's perfect... I'm antisocial, some people think I'm rude or ignoring them when actually I'm just un-cultured!

You'll do great Yella

your so nice;~}

just two wittle things;

1, do you spend much time hanging round St Albans still or is the person me thinkz iz u iz not u and me just making a fool of meself, or somthing..?

2, u never strike me as anti-socel, always talking with people and fur meets, and your defently not un cultured in my opinion, whats that Satenist church thing you belong to for example

the way me see'z it, it is me who is antisocel and us who is uncultured, not that it matters much, just in my parinorer me thought that you thought that me was to A~S and didn't think me was making the efort hench the first two things me complained about in the first place

just remember, it takes two to Not~Tango >Not~Tango being a new dance me made up where to Squirrelz say 'Not~Hi' II each other<

this responce has REALY made my day, fanx;~}

Sounds like the same Nynthi that wears a dog coller in public

Lets face it pups your not making life better for transsexuals at all you making life hell. Your not a woman, but a prat. at least lison to people that try to help you.

Hey, I know this is months later, but... what can I say? Your website has too many good pages to look through. It takes awhile! :)

Anyway, your comments here are very intelligent. I think that's something I need to be a little better/stronger at ... listening to & accepting criticism. Don't ask me why, but I decided to post a few quotes on it here, even if they're not completely in line with the above sentiments:

"Don't mind criticism. If it is untrue, disregard it; if unfair, keep from irritation; if it is ignorant, smile; if it is justified it is not criticism, learn from it."
~ Source Unknown

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
~ Thomas Jefferson

"Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you'll be criticized anyway."
~ Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)


This doesn't mean we take criticism to heart too quickly, but I believe that we should reflect on criticism more than we reflect on praise.
Yes! And yet, sometimes I wonder if some criticism is just as shallow & unjustified and some praise. I suppose it's up to the person to be honest with themselves and ask just how much truth is in anyone else's assessment of them, positive or negative.

I agree with the understanding that one needs to consider to sorce of the comments. Does the comment come from someone who rarely has the role of the critic, or is it from someone who habitually is a critic?

What statistic proves that USA as a whole has cornered the market on ignorance and the UK is right behind.

i put my name in a serch angine and thos os what came up ;~}

i don't know. i guess i'll lok at your more recent enteries

critizism os always welcome from me as long as it does not seem forced. i prefer sugestion to comand any day of the week
