Crush a spirit, criticize a soul

“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” — Octavia Butler

Criticism – even the most innocent kind can be something that will crush the spirit of a tender individual, someone not strong in their self-esteem.

Please be kind to one another. There is no greater gift than that of being kind and generous and good to each other as humans. Hey, we are all we got, right?
