The quickest way to expose your insecurities is to be hypercritical of others.
When you spend your time criticizing others, it says a lot more about you than the one that you are criticizing. Those who spend their lives finding fault in others are most critical of themselves. People feeling content with who they are, do not feel the need to put others down. The fault finder, full of self-contempt and often lacking self-awareness, criticizes others in order to boost a fragile ego.
Encourage rather than criticize. Empathize rather than judge. Become self-aware. Before flinging insults, take the time to look in the mirror and work on your own self-growth. Life is too short to be spent dwelling on the faults of others. Instead, try to find something positive about everyone that you meet. If there is a person in your life who habitually puts you down, remember that the problem may reside within them, not you.
