The Critic Who Matters


“Doesn’t cancel class enough.” -Anonymous College Student

This week is my least favorite of the semester: evaluations. An honest reflection of a course has slowly become the equivalent to an angry tweet.

It’s hard to protect our hearts from words, especially when we deeply care for those who offer them.

If you’re battling a season of harsh criticism or misunderstanding, you aren’t alone. The fallout shelter is never unoccupied.

Of this, I am confident: The troubles you endure today will bless someone in the future.

And I’m willing to bet that it will be you – the only critic who ever mattered.
