      In the merit of this learning may all of the soldiers of the IDF and all of the people of Israel be blessed with complete safety, health, and only revealed good. May all of the injured soldiers and civilians be blessed with an immediate refuah shleima bitoch she'ar cholei yisrael. 

      When criticizing insincerely and unaccompanied by love, the insincerity of your concern, your pleasure at seeing your victim's discomfort, and/or your desire to hurt someone at whom you might be angry will probably be apparent. As a result, your listener probably will react defensively and be unlikely to change. 

      Imagine yourself in the place of the person being criticized: If you sense that the speaker is enjoying his or her task, is coming from a place of anger or hatred, and isn't someone who loves you and cares about your best interest, wouldn't that provoke anger and denial in you rather than self examination?

      Create a wonderful day!
