Before you decide to criticize someone else ask yourself the following three questions:  Is this genuine concern for the other person?  Is it to make your life better?  Is it to hurt another?  The first two questions are legitimate.  The last is a bad decision.  If you decide to criticize then be sure your criticism will call for a change in behavior or thought.  If it is not, then you are deciding to use the third choice for which there is no benefit to you or the other person.
