>Am I too critical?

>My mom accuses my husband and I both of being too critical. We do have high expectations, whether it’s with customer service or product quality or personal actions. We spend a lot of our time together talking about the stupidity that we see from people on a daily basis.

Would we be happier if we were less critical? If we lowered our expectations on a personal, national and global level?

Maybe.

I can’t help but think what a better world this would be if people were able to meet our expectations. It’s not that it’s impossible. It’s just that people don’t think or don’t care, and they do the minimum necessary in their jobs and in their lives instead of doing the very best that they can and being the best that they can be.

They’re satisfied. And I’m critical.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have three cats and a husband.
