Question : Have I been wasting my time all these years trying to figure out why my mother-in-law is the way she is - always criticizing me - when i should have been trying to figure out why it bothers me so much?
Answer : My dear lady, the reason she criticizes you is because you didn't marry her son sooner! She'd been trying to get rid of him for years! After living with him for awhile, can't you see why she wanted to lose him earlier?
Seriously, the thing is that we have an inner criticizer who don't leave us alone. And because we listen to that voice inside us, we also listen to the person outside. We have to see clearly that this is the case. When we do see it fully, both criticizers will cease to have any effect on us. Who we really are has no connection with either one.
